Re: [IP] hypoglycemia, need advice, help


I know a few people with diabetes who also get belligerent when low.  The 
best advice, which works, seems to be to forget the verbal confrontations and 
when you notice your daughter is low, just hand her a glass of juice or a 
glucotab (whatever she uses to treat a low.)   The trick is to do it 
NON-verballly.  It seems to eliminate the need for rebellion.  Hope it helps!
