Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Hypoglycemia - 2010

Hypoglycemia from 2010

  1. Diagnosed in September, my son is having low blood sugars. He is eating extra carbohydrates without insulin to avoid lows. Should he still be getting insulin?. (13 Dec 2010)
  2. After eight years with type 1, my nephew is having frequent lows that he does not feel coming. Has his pancreas started working again? (13 Dec 2010)
  3. Could you please explain "rebounding?" (16 Nov 2010)
  4. After six grand mal seizures in a day, my son was diagnosed with ketotic hypoglycemia, but I am concerned something else may be going on. What is your opinion? (13 Oct 2010)
  5. Why do people experience delayed lows after exercise? How should I handle them in the future? (27 Sep 2010)
  6. Since an early July seizure, our daughter has been much more sensitive to insulin. We now have to give her diluted insulin. Have you heard of such sensitivities before? (27 Sep 2010)
  7. I sometimes experience lows as a result of my mountain biking. I have tried temporary basals, disconnecting the pump completely and frequent snacks. What do you suggest? (8 Sep 2010)
  8. Is there a protocol for an insulin pump user to follow after using glucagon to work sugars back down prudently without causing another low sugar? (24 Aug 2010)
  9. I have type 1 diabetes, autoimmune thyroid disease and primary adrenal insufficiency. How does adrenal insufficiency affect those with type 1? (17 Aug 2010)
  10. My boyfriend's blood sugar seems too low for safe driving. What should it be? If he refuses to check and still drives low, what should we do? (11 Aug 2010)
  11. For years, I aimed for an A1c <6. My new diabetes team has suggested I aim for an A1c of 7 because of frequent lows, but I think 7 is high. What do you think? (27 Apr 2010)
  12. Recently, my son has had episodes of shaking, paleness and fussiness. I am to test his fasting blood sugars at home for a week. Could his symptoms be related to his mastocytosis? (22 Mar 2010)
  13. My daughter has had diabetes for six years. Recently, she has been consistently low. Is she in her honeymoon period? (15 Mar 2010)
  14. Since going on an OmniPod, we find we need to treat our daughter's lows twice because it takes much longer to bring up her blood sugar What might be causing this? (10 Mar 2010)
  15. Despite reduced insulin and no increase in activity, my son is experiencing lows. Could it be bad insulin or could his pancreas could be working after all this time? (7 Mar 2010)
  16. My daughter is having post-lunch lows that require a treatment of about 100 grams of carbohydrates and turning off the pump for four hours. How would a reduced lunch bolus help? (2 Mar 2010)
  17. My son, on three injections a day, is refusing to eat lunch causing low blood sugars. Meal replacement drinks are not helping. What else can I do? (16 Feb 2010)

  19. As a college swimmer, my daughter has gone back to injections and reduced her insulin drastically, but she is still having 5 a.m. lows. How can she prevent them? (1 Feb 2010)
