Re: [IP] feeling lows



I have no good solution to this problem.  I have had diabetes for 35 years
and have never passed out.  I have learned by talking to people with the
disease that it effects everyone uniquely.  The only idea I could think of
if this person had a buddy system with a friend that would routinely call
him to check up on him.  This really isn't very practical though.
