    Hypoglycemia is a lss than normal amount of glucose in the blood. It is usually caused by administration of too much insulin, excessive secretion of insulin by the islet cells of the pancreas, or dietary deficiency.
    Reactive hypoglycemia is having low levels of glucose in the blood after ingestion of carbohydrates. It may be related to increased insulin sensitivity or excess counter-regulatory hormone secretion or action.
