Re: [IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V2 #189

Yes,  I feel hypothermic after low bg's as well. Once the blood sugar
gets high enough so that I have some energy again, I find that moving
around quickly (eg., on a stationary bike) is the best way to get warm
again. I prefer this to having a hot shower since I usually find that I
quickly get cold when I come out of a hot shower (and I can't bear
anticipating that when I'm shivering)...
