Re: [IPu] RE: [IPk] Re: ip-uk-digest V2 #359 - hyypo unawareness

Useable blood sugar is the driving force which keeps the brain running. If
the supply stops then there is going to be damage. Nobody has sufficient
information to prove other wise either way but if you want to be safe make
sure you correct low blood sugars at the earliest time. One big advantage I
have found using the pump it has meant that I can sense (feel) lows before I
go too low to be able to take corrective action and nobody is going to carve
my brain open to see if it has been damaged whilst I am still alive.
