    There is also recent study from Kaiser that showed that severe hypoglycemic episodes was associated with a greater risk of dementia among an older population of type 2′s.

    Hahahaha “Diabetes 101 review: Diabetes causes everything.”

    I have said this many times to people and I wonder if they think I’m joking but it’s, unfortunately, very true…

    Oh come on… in my almost 31-years as a T1 (well, actually those first few years were as a Juvenile Diabetic, until they decided to change the name on me), I never ever met a low BG that I didn’t overtreat. There’s a reason they call it “treat”, it’s a rare opportunity to eat the “bad stuff”. Please don’t take that away from me!

    I’ve always wondered if going low caused brain damage. I know when I was younger, I dropped so low after school one day that I went into a seizure. It didn’t hit until the next day when the school nurse was asking me questions…but I had no memory of that day until after my sugar was back up.
    Another good quick fix for leg cramps is the gatorade electrolyte mix and keeping some of the really small powerades/gatorades hidden somewhere for just when u are cramping. Even if your BG is a lil bit high, it won’t make it go that much higher and it will usually stop the cramping before you can finish testing your sugar. Then just take a shot for your BG+the few carbs in the drink.
