A:
Reactive hypoglycemia, also called postprandial hypoglycemia, or sugar crash is a term describing recurrent episodes of symptomatic hypoglycemia.

More specifically, it usually occurs within a few hours after a high carbohydrate meal.

It is common among people with diabetes, but it can also occur in people who do not have diabetes.
