Hypoglycaemia is a condition that causes blood sugar level to drop dangerously low. It mostly shows up in diabetic patients who take insulin. Hypoglycaemia usually occurs in people being treated for diabetes (type 1 and type 2).Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a long termcondition caused by damaged to both kidney. There is no single cause and damage is usually 

irreversible. Diabetes mellitus is one common causeof CKD.A key goal for diabetic treatment in patient with CKD is rigorous glucose control to prevent end 

stage renal disease (ESRD).In this work, we proposed fuzzy inference model for determine dosing requirements for hypoglycaemic patient withCKD. The expert system was designed based on four (04) Glucose –Lowering drugs needed for prescription; Acarbose, Metformin, Chlorproamide and Glipizide and CKD 

classifications. Clinicians choose from list of drug and CKD stage of the patient and the expert system prescribe the drug dosage requirement for that particular drug.
