The lowest I have experienced was 57 and I was cold, shaky and disoriented. I usually feel hungry and shaky around 70. I certainly wouldn’t knowingly drive under 75 or so...because I know I am impaired at that level.

It took a while for my BG to come down to below 100. Kind of glad it did come down slowly, I've never had a feeling of being hypo. I know the first time I ever had a 70 was after a long walk with my wife and I tested until my fingers hurt from being pricked so much. Now I don't fret too much even going into the 60s which isn't very often.

Too low depends on how you feel, what your blood sugar is normally and what medications you take. In my case, my endo has my current buffer at 90. Anything in the 80s, I should be looking for a small snack. Now, previous experience shows that I start getting sweats and shakes about 84 and it doesn't take much to get to that from 90. I am not going to go into a coma at that, but I am also caring for a disabled family member and drive a lot. Now, as I lose weight and my overall numbers come down, then my buffer will be lowered, but my insulin amounts will also change.

The lowest I've had is 64.
