The prediction for Sotomayor is that everything will be fine, barring a “big meltdown.”
So…I’m sure a big thing for Sotomayor is to make sure she doesn’t going low during her confirmation hearings. Imagine…YOU WILL BECOME A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE AS LONG AS YOU CAN AVOID HYPOGLYCEMIA FOR A 4 or 6 HOUR PERIOD OF TIME!!!
What would you do? Keep your blood sugar at 200, just to be safe? Start your day at 100 but just eat protein for the day and live off your basal insulin and maybe a REALLY small bolus here and there? Would you ask to be excused so that you could check your BG? Would you admit that you might be getting low and you need to pop a glucose pill?
Have you ever had a situation where it would be enormously catastrophic for your blood sugar to go low?
