Management of Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar

Recent my mother was visiting me at Bangalore and she has been a diabetic since the age of 44. She recently was advised to move from oral hypoglycemics to Insulin. As she prepared to leave, she took a dose of Insulin as she does normally and entered the airport. Halfway through to the gate, she started reeling and was slowly losing consciousness.
