Q: 

If you pass out from low blood sugar?

A: If someone has low blood sugar, chances are, they are diabetic. Call 911 first thing. But do not sit around and piddle on your butt waiting because there is a time when the body goes too long without sugar (I''d say within 4 minutes of passing out) and you can die. You would get something sweet and give it to them. HOWEVER, do not give them any liquids...they will aspirate it. A diabetic that is on insulin should ALWAYS CARRY Glucagon. Cake frosting, for example, is a good thing to use. Just put it into the sides of their mouth (not a whole lot) and wait until they regain consciousness. Diabetic people need to carry that with them at all times. As a diabetic, I have a tube of cake frosting...
