Re: [IPk] RE: NCE Guidance

Well the question is "help you do what"?
Technically a "hypo requiring third-party assistance" should mean that 
the assistance is required to get you out of the hypo, though whether 
it's interpreted that way or not is another matter. Indeed, I'd be 
interested to hear. I mean, if you're hypo, surely you can wait until 
you're not hypo before getting in the car and driving. So the hypo 
doesn't prevent you driving, ie it doesn't require someone to come and 
get you, it just delays you driving, as you need to wait until you're 
OK. If it's going to be hours before you're OK, then I'd classify that 
as a severe hypo!!!
