Low BG's are the pits! Frequent and severe low BG's are what drove me to pump insulin after 35 years doing insulin shots…but by then, I was post-menopausal. I haven't had any serious really low BG's requiring glucagon or vists to the ER since I started pumping. I trust you are working with your endo to iron out these problems…have you also been in touch with your pump manufacturer? They may also be able to suggest some solutions.

WOW 20's and 30's, I'd be passed out at that low. What do you do? You should be eating a quick carbohydrate before it gets that low. Can you feel the low coming on? That is very concerning.

ok now im stressed my insurance covers all my diabetic supplies except my one step test kit!!! that does not make sense!!!

lilleyheidi 2015-02-13 01:07:49 -0600 Report

Kathleen, call your insurance and ask what test kits they cover and what test strips they cover then call your doctor and ask for that kind. Sometimes you have to go backwards in order to go forward. Sorry this is happening to you.

Hi Ruth, I hear you about stress, take care of yourself girl, I was stressed out because I found out I had diabetes 2, and now Im stressed because it is taking forever to get my supplies!! I have everything except the one touch kit device to be able to monitor my blood sugar, so I had to contact the dr, and she had to make another order for it to the pharmacy! I just want to get this started!!!!

Following my hysterectomy when I was 39 years old, all I had were hot flashes. I never had Diabetes 2 until I was about 55 years old.
