now that I require quite a bit more insulin then before I m also experiencing many more lows.
I have noticed that they can come on pretty fast,surprisingly fast: my BG sometimes can drop 20-40 points within a few minutes – because I m extra cautious at the moment and testing a lot I usually catch them in their 60s, and treat immediately.
So far so uncomfortable ;)
I m wondering though how much time I would have if I wasn't able to test or treat right away...
Could people maybe share their experiences on how much time on average would go by between their first signs of feeling low to the moment where it becomes hard to treat on their own, because their thinking might get fuzzy or they might even get close to passing out..I m sure this is an individual thing and that it also depends on how much insulin is on board, if physical activity is involved etc..I just would feel a bit more secure if I had a ball park sort of idea of how fast I would have to react if ever in the situation where I couldnt treat or measure right away...(If Im in a pool SWIMMING for example)
And I m definitely too much of a sissy to self-experiment ;-) ..well at least for now...
Your uncomfortable experiences would be very much appreciated ;) Thank you!
