where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hey there I'm new to this app. Been T1 for 23 years now, I have found it real difficult coping after a hypo the last couple years.

I've lost my hypo awareness, I just get very upset with myself for ending up hypo. I'm not on pump I use humalog and lantus.

Hi**** I haven't had this problem myself, but ive heard others say if they run high for a little while, they can reset their awareness.

Keep testing, maybe time to reevaluate your ratios & discuss with doctor

A few days ago I met a young boy who had a testing device that constantly monitors his levels. He wore it like an insulin pump through a catheter. Maybe something to look into. :)

Forgot to mention that it had an alarm on it to indicate low and high levels.

Sounds like a sensor, most pumps link to one now. Awesome additional tool in the diabetes fight.

Continuous glucose monitor (CGM for short) checks your blood glucose every couple minutes. You would qualify through insurance if having severe lows and/or not sensing lows
