I have awakened sweaty and confused all from low BS. I am type 2 but I think the symptoms are the same. Never considered dehydration being a part of it.

Those are pretty typical symptoms of low sugars. You can add to it blurred vision, slurred speech, shaky, and I guess that covers it!

Yep any time I drop below 50 I get the same thing
thats why I test befor bead time and before I drive.
It's a good thing he can feel it when he drops that low
some can not even feel it .
A little high fiber snak before bead will help im not go that low in the AM
Best wishes
