This begs a few questions:
1) Most importantly: do you /feel/ like you have low blood sugar? Is your energy ok, or are you feeling lethargic, foggy brained, 'hungry'?
2) are you eating very low carb? (like less than 50 gm of carbs?)
3) Do you have a history of low/high blood sugar?
4) how long have you been eating paleo and/or low carb?
Basically, eating the way your body needs - adequate protein & fat, moderate/low intake of starchy veggies & fruit, and lots of leafy/fiberous veggies, your blood sugar should be stable and at a range _for you_ that keeps you from getting lots of dips and spikes.
For me, my fasting glucose level has actually risen a bit - it used to be around 50-60 (and would rip your head off if you got between me and my breakfast), now it's in the mid-70's and I'm able to hang out, do whatever, then eat when I'm ready.
One thought I did have - if you've just started doing a lower carb eating (or just switched to paleo/primal, which usually means you've got a big drop in your carb intake), you could be having the 'rebound' hypoglycemia after eating... basically, you eat, your body is /expecting/ a huge intake of simple carbs and releases the insulin to drive down the expected spike in glucose. Unfortunatley, you didn't eat a bunch of carbs, but your blood sugar drops regardless.
Even if you don't feel it, that may be what's happening. If it worries you, adjust your 'safe' carbs a little higher (add in 1/2 sweet potato at lunch, for example) and see what happens.
Take the words “genetic freak” out of your vocabulary and substitute the words “hard working, committed, and focused” and you will have removed one obstacle to doing things you never thought possible. Top Dawg
