Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for your question.
Hypoglycemia is defined as a serum glucose level (the amount of sugar or glucose in your blood) below 70 mg/dL. Symptoms of hypoglycemia typically appear at levels below 60 mg/dL. Some people may feel symptoms above this level. Levels below 50 mg/dL affect brain function.
Here's a link that might help you in understanding your glucose level.
Best of luck,
