I occasionally have hypo signs with a normal blood sugar. but if I dont react to the signs, within half an hour, I go truly hypo. It doesnt always happen, but I do sometimes get pre-hypo signs, I think. (but they feel like true hypos, so I have to test to see whether to act immediately with glucose, or just ensure I eat something (biscuit etc very soon.)
But I also, just last week, had a case where I was sure I was hypo. Did a test, read 4.4. Thought – not hypo, maybe going hypo, about to eat meal anyway. Then (cos was meal time, and had to do bolus, so needed meter reading there and then) had to test again within about 2 minutes. Reading – 3.7. Same meter. Different finger (same hand). WTF?
