Re: [IPk] RE: ip-uk-digest V4 #116



HI Brenda
I guess it makes sense to try to rule out everything else first. If it's 
hypo related, then there's not much anyone can do except for David to 
try to get better control / test more / avoid hypos. But if it's 
anything else, then you need to know. Hopefully they will draw some 
conclusions soon!
