From Indiana, USA:

My 16 year old son has had Type 1 diabetes since age 4. Can a low blood sugar of 30 cause him to act in a drunk stage and become violent?


Low blood sugar can; but it does not usually lead to aggressive behaviour. Remember though that alcohol can lead to both aggressive behaviour and hypoglycemia.
