I use to do that too. What worked for me was switching what I ate to treat a low. In the old days, I’d drink juice, chocolate milk, eat bars, or eat/drink anything sugary I could get my hands on. I can recall making chocolate milk by adding chocolate syrup to white milk, but making it SOOO thick that it was more like a sludge than a drink. My hypo mind was saying “Make sure there’s enough chocolate in there to bring me back up.” And then low and behold, I would have a nasty hyper high event not too long after.
Now, I use glucose tablets exclusively. They have a consistent number of carbs in them (4g per tablet, I use the ReliOn brand I can get cheap at Walmart), which makes it easy to know how many to eat, or more importantly, WHEN to stop eating them. Whenever I go low, I usually start with 4 tabs (16g total carbs) and see how it goes. If I’m getting better, I stop. If not, I retest and then do another 4 tabs if necessary. By that point, I’m almost always back to where I need to be.
If my mind is really wonky, all I have to do it count how many I’ve had, then do the math later to figure out how many carbs I ate. Works a lot better than guessing if I drank 10 or 20 ounces of orange juice, or trying to guess how thick the chocolate sludge was.
