1. I am with you on Hypos lasting longer than we give them credit. UUUgh I had one that seemed to last for hours. Oh wait, that was a college basketball game where my favorite team was defeated. Oh well.

    I referred your blog to the TUDiabetes blog site for the week of April 11, 2016.

  2. When i was on long acting insulin and using short acting insulin for bolus doses, i had episodes of what you describe. When you have a background long acting insulin, with no way of knowing exactly how much active insulin is in the background it can cause these types of hypo’s. The good news is that when you start on the pump, you will be able to tell exactly how much active insulin is in your body, as the pump has a read out on this. So when you are hypo you are much better able to calculate the carbs you need, given you are only on short acting insulin, no hidden background insulin sneaking up on you. Not long now.
