please a simple YES or NO (no guesses please)<<

Yes.  Here are some definitions from the 'net.

Hypoglycemia:  deficiency of glucose concentration in the blood, 
which may lead to nervousness, hypothermia, headache, confusion, and 
sometimes convulsions and coma (from 
http://www.med-help.net/Hypoglycemia.html)

Mortality/Morbidity: Delay in treatment can result in profound 
sequelae, including death. Acute sequelae include coma, cardiac 
dysrhythmia, and death (from 
http://www.emedicine.com/emerg/topic272.htm)

Hypoglycemia: When blood sugar drops and hypoglycemia develops, most 
people will begin feeling weak, drowsy, excessively hungry, and 
dizzy. A person may feel confused or irritable. The person may appear 
pale, may tremble, or feel cold and clammy. A rapid heartbeat may 
also be felt. In severe cases, usually associated with diabetes, a 
person can lose consciousness and lapse into a coma  (from:
