The above description is for symtoms of diagnosis for DM, not for low BGs.
How many of us in a low have had sudden weight loss and had to run to the
bathroom? Hope they run an article clarifying the difference, as
*uneducated* readers now *know* the symptoms of a low - which could be quite
dangerous. Someone in a real low, not displaying those symptoms, may not be
treated properly. (~_^)
