Re: [IP] Waking from lows...


Since your meter is so far away, I'd move the meter.  You do sound like you
are rebounding after a low.  But I wouldn't count on my liver saving me

I have a routine that whenever my dog wakes up and wants to go outside, I
test myself.  I am hypoglycemic unaware and have tested at 39 on occasion
and never felt the low at all.

Testing, it's not just a good idea, it can save your life!


PS.  Gypsy would like to take the credit for waking me up.  But, it is only
because she wants to go outside and maybe snag a treat when she comes back
