Cotton candy and low...weird!


We went to the circus tonight and I went with a low blood sugar. I had a bunch of cotton candy and did not bolus for it. I got home and checked my blood and it was in the 80s…I find that kinda weird. I went to and checked the carbs and it was like 50something.


Strange. Unless you had a lot of insulin on board that was going to keep dropping your bs levels. I had wondered before about cotton candy. There’s so much air that there is less sugar than I thought.


I have no idea! Maybe if I had the feature that told me my “IOB” (insulin on board) that would make life easier…but my insurance does not feel it is a necessity for me to have features like that in order to simplify my life. ::sorry for the venting::
