[IP] lows

 Sharon, When you are having a low with insulin still on board, don't forget
that Glucagon can be used in small doses. (Google mini-dose Glucagon).

 After a meal it is harder for fast acting carbs to be absorbed from the
stomach, so if using carbs, chew well & keep in your mouth as long as possible,
swish it around, as it can get into your system fairly quickly from your mouth.
 And if you are struggling to but afraid to bring your sugars down, try lowering
your target slowly & feel safe at each new level before lowering a bit further.
 Sensors are definitely a wonderful tool since you can set your low target at
where ever you need it to be - 120? 150?
We all need to feel safe, good luck
