A lot of people who claim to be hypoglycemic are not. That's the first thing you have to keep in mind. They may feel weak, or dizzy or something if they get too hungry, but hypoglycemia is more than that.

Yes, hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia can cause a lot of the symptoms of depression, and usually someone who is suffering uncontrolled diabetes/hypoglycemia/whatever will have some mood issues, too.

If you really think that's a problem, go get a glucometer, keep a diary of your blood sugar for one month, with a diary of *everything* you eat, when you eat it, the readings before you eat, the readings about an hour after you eat, and your mood. Take that diary to your doctor, and see what he/she says. It's not only having your blood sugar fall once in a while, but a pattern of lows that shows hypoglycemia rather than an anomolous low reading.

On the other hand, if you find that you have a problem, controlling it may help the depression. I know that I have major mood problems when my blood sugar starts falling out of its usual control.
