Since being diagnosed with type 1 about a year and a half ago I have erred very much on the low side of BG. I’m so frightened of complications from high BG down the road that I’d much rather see numbers in the 30s and 20s than the 150s. Given that I have been in the 20s and even the teens and not felt at all close to passing out, I’ve not been terribly concerned (though obviously I’m aiming for 70 - 120). I get told off by endos, but only because they say it puts me in danger of passing out in a bad situation or losing the ability to sense these lows.
On my own, I’ve turned up a little info on the web, and I think it’s been mentioned here occasionally, about possible nerve damage from lows. Has anyone experienced this or know what typical problems can occur and from what severity and frequency of lows over what type of timescale?
Lately, I’ve noticed some mild symptoms that seem like my nerves are kind of generically aggravated. More random twitches and limbs falling asleep from pressure than usual, etc.
Related? Any thoughts?
