My 14 year old son was diagnosed with type 1 16 months ago. He takes injections 3 times a day. Last week he had a full blown seizure early in the morning. Immediately afterward his number was at 83. The paramedics gave him the glucose gel and his number dropped to 80. The doctors seem to think that it was brought on by low blood sugar while he slept. His desired numbers are from 100 to 120 so 83 was not out of range foir him. He gets a bit shaky around 65. Has anybody else gone through this? I know that the liver MIGHT kick in if the level goes drastically low, but would it kick in enough to bring it up that much? Please help!?!?
