Friends, in the last two days, I have read more pleas for help or information; heard more questions on the street about what to do aboat HIGHS and LOS.
Here's what I mean: " I just took my Blood Sugars, and the meter reads 500 do you think I need to go the Dr,?" HUH????? What should they be doing? How can we give them information or get the info out there that this is a very serious situation? What would you say?
Second question: A friend calls and she says "my blood sugar is ONLY 39 ---do you think I should eat something? What do you do when you have a lo like that?" Good grief are docs not informing their patients when an emergency exists? So what would you have said?
When do you, if ever, or if you have had HIGHs and LOs what have you done for yourself? Let's do a little educating here, okay? This really scares me when people don't even know what to do to save themselves. Thanks, now I can sleep at night,
