    Excellent answers, good to know what to expect down the road with D and menopause. Loved the thoughtful response to the teen as well. Thanks for sharing!

    Living alone, I can totally relate to the scare of lows. Nobody to give me glucagon if I pass out, and I’ve indeed had severe lows before, but so far never lost consciousness. And I like your tip of testing when you might be likely to go low, in order to prevent it. Never thought of it myself! :-)

    Great post. Thanks for it.
    I am always in search of info on diabetes, as my wife who is only 30 is diagnosed with diabetes. She is on Metformin 500 mg twice a day and Pioglitazone 15 mg once a day and well controlled.
    I will keep visiting your blog on diabetes.

    Great information here. I’ve been taking insulin for about a year and boy those lows are scary. But I’m getting better at noticing the signs my body gives me, which have changed and seem more subtle than they used to be. I also test a lot so I’m getting better at predicting what is coming. And I didn’t realize the effect the menopause can have on blood sugars, good to know. Glad I finally discovered this site.
