RE: [IP] test scores when low

Since it rarely happens I am going to agree with len on this one.  My #1
hypo sign is loss of vocabulary....i.e. I  cannot artuculate myself AT ALL.
Mind you when I had to defend my senior thesis in college I was running high
all day so I to try and avoid the lack of diction that the hypo would bring.
In your case I would say that you should ask the teacher to let your
daughter re-take this test as a one-time deal and have her test prior to all
tests in the future...that way she won't us low BG as an excuse for bad test
scores.  If her level is below whatever you and your dr.'s deem too low to
test then she treats it as a normal hypo and takes the test as soon as her
levels are in range.

Mind you that I do not have ANY experience with
teachers/childre/diabetes....so this might not be doable....I am, however
gifted with excellent common sense and this is what I would do for my
children or myself if it were an issue.

Subject: [IP] test scores when low

-- thats a real tough one... rather than speak for everyone....
(though, i might get away with it, on this issue, ill not take the chance)
(i could be having one of those bad days, after all)

FOR MYSELF, i dont nearly thing as well, when my bs i low...
they all understand that at work,
and (no joking here), if i seem to be having a problem, resolving an issue,
they ask
me, if my bs is low... if it isnt, i just tell them, "no, im just not a
brilliant day, today" ;-)

BUT, the real issue, certainly you daughter can NOT be blamed for the
occurrence, but,
do YOU want the teacher to make an exception....

somewhat like handicap.... not "equal but different", BUT, "the same"

to me...
Do you have the right ? YES....
Do you have a reason ? YES
Do you want to ?  Yours, and only your decision.
