an attack of hypoglycemia from too much insulin or too many tablets can be almost identical to a panic attack
panic attacks are common for anxiety sufferers, there are some diabetics who also have panic attacks, so its essential for them to test their blood sugar levels to see which it is
I guess both could happen at the same time......
lots of info and descriptions of panic attacks on the net, via a search engine

Thanks for the info Harry. I was hypoglycemic for many years, and I also suffer from panic attacks. I can personally feel the difference, because I feel so shaky and weak when hypo, and more heart pounding with panic. I can see how the symptoms could be confused though.
