Re: [IP] Treating lows

I also try to just use the glucose tabs to keeping from swinging high. I
don't mind the taste but I don't crave it either. When I was first
diagnosed, I was told nothing about the lows. I woke during the first night
and knew I had to eat. My whole body was shaking. I downed not 1 but 2
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I did this almost nightly until my 2
week visit when we cut my basal rate in half and changed my carb to insulin
rate. With all of the eating to overtake the lows it did not take long for
me to regain the weight lost before diagnosis. If they could just give us an
injectible solution to cover the calories we'd be in great shape.
