[IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V5 #394

It's terrible when you start out with a reading at 200 then for unknown
reason bottom out and end up in the parking lot like Hubby did.  He then
started keeping glucose high, would panic if he got down to 150, then he
started to have problems last year with wide swings.  This also has
contributed to complications.  As a result, he did very little driving
beyond a 2 mile range.  Now with the pump the swings and lows aren't a
problem.  I would think that if someone on a pump did have such a problem
with a low, perhaps a recheck of both basal rate(s) and carb knowledge for
bolusing should be done.

with lows

It is very frightening to see the discussion about people with uncontrolled
lows to the point of unconsciousness and they are driving a car! What gives
people the right to be driving with the seriousness of their lows and
putting not only their lives but lives of others at stake? If you have a
spouse doing this take away their license for the sake of you and others.
