It must be all the energetic sports I’ve been watching but today so far I have had 2 hypos.
The first I would probably award myself a gold as I have no hypo awareness and even with cgm by the time I tested I was at 2.1 with double downward arrows on my cgm. It was a nail biting event wondering if the glucose would kick in before I lost the plot. The second merits a silver at most and probably a bronze as 4 hours later I was back at 2.6 hunting down any remaining fruit pastilles.
Anyone else want to register their recent hypos in a Shoot Up medal table?
My wife called an ambulance for me about 7 weeks ago when she woke me up & couldn’t get any sense out of me (or at least less sense than normal)
Apparently several bizarre activities which I don’t remember, Bg too low to read on a meter & I threw up on a paramedic after getting the gluco shot things I have a horrible reaction to… His fellow paramedics were really impressed I managed to hit a moving target, apparently with practice from drunks they have cat like reactions.
Sigh. Same thing happened to me today, Megs. i am without cgm as i was only given 3 months supply as a test to see if it helped. It did. I am having problems. Like a hypo last Thursday while in the garden, my son found me and had to call an ambulance. First time one of my children has had to do that.
@lizz , are your PCT i(f they still exist) completely unable to help you to use cgm for any longer even with evidence it helped you? Thank goodness one of your children found you. It is difficult enough avoiding hypos you aren’t aware of even when you are assisted by cgm. It really hit home the other day how important it is to be aware of the time lag between interstitial readings and blood glucose when your levels are down in the 1 -2 mmols and there is no time to react. Still on a roller coaster of hypos and highs testing out the full cgm range after my scary hypo the other day,
My team at the hospital is trying to get my records assembled into proof. Then they have to send it, then the PCT has to review it, come to a decision, implement the decision. It’s hard as I do go up and down anyway, but with the machine I’m certainly safer, particularly at night.
Have you tried the predictor facility? it’s very good – it checks how quickly you are falling and predicts when you are likely to have a hypo, and it seemed to work quite well – better than telling me when I was hypo as that is half an hour before! I’m still hypo when it tells me as i fall very quickly but it’s better.
