RE: [IP] good A1Cs without frequent lows possible?



It was about a year ago in a magazine in the waiting room at the Joslin
Clinic. I'm sorry I don't remember more (I've already lost to many of those
good brain cells). When I go to my next appt I'll look as I think their
current batch of mags is 1963.

I read a study that showed blood sugars below 60 cause some brain cell to
die. I worry about this because I have few enough goods ones left.

Why is it not good for the body? I agree that reactions are not par but that
is temporary. I have tried to find reports on the problem with lows. All I
can find is the problems are temporally in nature, once the low is corrected
no more problems. The only permanent problems are when the low is in the
20's and unconsousness occurs.

Although it may seem that in the 40s you are functioning properly studies
have shown that reaction times and thought processes are not at par when the
BG drops this low. It is also not good for the body. If when you low target
is 90 you are going into the 300s you may need to change your basal rate for
that time period or change your Insulin to carb ration.
