I saw this article (Don't Drive With Low Blood Sugar
By Madeline Vann, MPH | Medically reviewed by Pat F. Bass III, MD, MPH http://www.everydayhealth.com/type-2-diabetes... ) and it reminded me of an incident that happend to me 3yrs ago. At that time I did not know I was diabetic and my former doctors had no clue what was going on with my body.
I picked my daughter up from school and as I was driving home I began to feel very light headed so I pulled the truck over until the feeling passed. Fortunately for me, I did not cause an accident. This occurred two other times (one of which resulted in a minor accident, thank God no one was injured). After that I decided that it was best for me and other drivers, for me to stop driving and I have not drove since that time.
I do not know if I had diabetes 3 yrs ago or if the cause of my light headedness is the result of some other problem, my current doctor is working on resolving that question. However, this article caused me to pause and think on the off chance that I am blessed with being able to drive again and I hope it does the same for everyone here before getting behind the wheel.
