Lily takes enough glucose to raise bg's to 150 -- tests in 15 - 20 
minutes and repeats if necessary until bg's stabalize around 100. If 
the low is due to an over bolus for a meal, then if the unused 
insulin rule yields info to indicate a further decline in bg's (and 
it's not pizza or something like that) then she will eat enough to 
cover the unused insulin. If the low is due to exercise -- like a 
soccer tournament, she will lower her basal 0.1u/hr for at least 8 
hours or more.
