If left untreated, hypoglycemia may lead to a seizure or unconsciousness (passing out, a coma). In this case, someone else must take over.

Glucagon is a hormone that stimulates your liver to release stored glucose into your bloodstream when your blood glucose levels are too low down. Injectable glucagon kits are used as a medication to treat someone with diabetes that has become unconscious from a severe insulin feedback. Glucagon kits are available by prescription. Talk with your health care provider about whether you should buy one, and how and when to use it.
The people you are in frequent contact with (for example, significant others, family members, and coworkers) should also be instructed on how to administer glucagon to treat severe hypoglycemic events. Have them call your health care provider immediately or the emergency line if they feel they can’t handle the situation (for example, if the hypoglycemic person passes out, doesn’t regain consciousness, or hasa seizure if the care taker does not know how to inject glucagon, or if glucagon is not available).
If glucagon is needed:
1.    Inject glucagon into the individual’s arm,buttock, or thigh, following the manufacturer’s instructions
2.    When the individual regains consciousness (usually in 10-15 minutes), they may experience nausea and vomiting
3.    If you have needed glucagon, let your health care provider know, as a result they can discuss ways to prevent severe hypoglycemia in the future.
Do not:
•    Inject insulin (will lower blood glucose even more).
•    Provide food or fluids (individual can choke).
•    Put hands in mouth (individual can choke).
