Although the symptoms of a hypoglycemic attack can be very painful and include shaking, sweating and extreme hunger, you can reverse them. Attacks don't typically cause any long-term damage, unless the hypoglycemia goes untreated for long periods of time. Simple steps like knowing your target blood glucose levels and the proper foods to eat will help you manage an attack. Paying attention to your body will also help you sense when an attack is first coming on--before it gets to a serious stage.
