Re: [IP] Re: Hypothermia with low BG's

      Kerry has had multiple lows.  Some have been as low as 15!!!!  She has
been diagonised with some brain damage due to the frequent lows.  There have
been several times that Kerry could hold a very intelligent conversation
while experiencing a low (one occurance her bs was 19), but when she
recovered she oculd not even remember the conversation.  'Tis the life of a
very brittle diabetic.  Brian
