Default Oof. Low

Got home from work with a BS of 3.4. Shaky, hungry, sweaty.

Took my Dex4 and tested 15 minutes later. 3.7. Four more Dex4 and I went up to 7.

Ugh

Looking foreword to a 61, not really a hypo, don't believe it bother me. Lowest I've seen is 63, just couldn't keep it down there.

I don't have any problems at that level either - I've never considered it a hypo. I often have periods sitting in the 60s.

I agree that hypos, um, s--k.

My G4 is relentless in screaming over them. Maybe you should set the threshold higher, say, 80, and change the alert volume. You won't miss the alarm then!

g4? For me, a 3.4 is low. I'm still getting to lower levels. Now I can comfortably sit in the high 4s without that sweaty shaky feeling

"Oof" is the perfect word for that low feeling.

For me, 60 - 70 isn't a true hypo, but any level below 70 does mean, "Eat. Soon. Now would be good." Sort of a pre-hypo thing.
