    Well, yes, you should know that Hypoglycemia is a condition in which the blood sugar level of a person dips down below the normal level. We can also call this as low blood sugar. Also, because of the low blood sugar, you will be unable to perform daily activities due to the decrease in energy levels caused by low blood glucose levels in the body. And in some cases, it can lead to dilated pupils. Also, it can cause sweating, nervousness, irritability, fatigue, depression, disturbed vision and headache. Anyway, just take some ways to treat it.

    Yes, the hypoglycemia will cause the dilated pupils. With hypoglycemia, people will get low blood sugar which will be weak at the whole body. At the same time, their eyes are easily infected through the coming bacterium. Thus, the dilated pupils may appear. In order to prevent the dilated pupils for the people with low blood sugar, they should eat more food with nutrition to protect the eyes.
