It depends a lot on the medications that he is on. Its more common in people on insulin injections. If so, then the dose needs to be adjusted or sometimes the type of insulin should be changed. Also, other factors like kidney or liver damage can lead to it. The reasons can me manifold.
he wil require a thorough assessment considering he is also a heart patient.
He should have a small snack like a fruit just before going to bed.
