Re: [IPk] Hypo control

Hi Pat

Thanks for asking.  Yes, I got through last night OK.  When I went to bed it 
was 12.  At 5.00 am it was 5.5 and when I got up it was 5.2.  At present the 
answer is to go to bed with it high.  This was not so before 3 weeks ago and 
if it was high I would have given a correction.

I have been reading the messages from Melissa and yourself about continuous 
glucose measuring and given the chance I would love to try to for prevention 
but it will not give the reason why the insulin in there now and not 

I had not actually thought about the bottle of insulin.  I changed to a 
fresh one a few days ago.  One thing that strikes me is that I think this is 
a new supply of insulin.  I collected it a few weeks ago and it is kept in 
the bottom of the fridge.  I find it difficult to suspect that insulin 
strength would be different for any particular supply of insulin.  An 
interesting thought.

BTW, where does your husband usually take his glasses off?  I sometimes 
leave mine in the bathroom.  What is he able to do without them? (Sorry, I 
too ask the obvious questions!)
