RE: [IPp] memory loss???

My 5 year old son was 1.9 (34) the other day at school, had dropped in gym
class (1/2 hour) from 5.8 (104) and had no recollection of gym class at all
that day.  He kept asking about gym class and felt ripped off that he didn't
get to go to gym class.  He kept mentioning it all day long.  I can't
imagine having a blood sugar level that low.  I'm sure that it would feel
like a drug induced haze.  I'm not sure about your daughter (long term
effects) but my 12 year old daughter was like that (non-D) She would accuse
me of not having a birthday party for her and would be very adamant about it
until I showed her the pictures.  Then she would go "oh, ok...) : /

Good luck!

Subject: [IPp] memory loss???

I have an eight-year-old (diabetic) daughter who doesn't seem to remember
some important events from just a year or two ago.  Maybe these moments
don't stand out in her mind because they were not important to HER, but I'm
starting to worry that maybe the diabetes affects her long-term memory.  I
know each kid is different, but my son who is six (not diabetic) is like an
elephant and never forgets anything.  It is such a contrast.  I mentioned it
to the endo who said they can run tests on her.  They asked if I ever had to
use glucagon on her and I have not.  She does not have frequent lows either.
Any thoughts on this?
