Many factors come into play when deciding the level at which a low blood sugar needs treatment, including age, previous activity or exercise, and how long before the next meal. The largest percentage of our readers -- 33% -- report that at 70 mg/dl [3.9 mmol/L], they begin treatment for low blood sugar. The average level of all responses is 68 mg/dl.
