Re: [IP] Having some trouble

Ashley- I wish I could tell you that you could fix this problem but I have
the same situation and my doctor says good control is the only solution. A
lot of good that idea does- I run low then high most of the time myself. I
do find that I can do better if I use more self control when I react to a
low. I have learned that I need about thirty grams of carbs to come out of
a 40 to 60 BG, but I have to test about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs later to be sure of
where I am. It's no fun but testing seems to be the only answer. Good luck
