Time to start reducing basal again, I think... Had a hypo event last night around 9pm, BGL went down to 3. Had the shakes and sweats. Did the treatment thing but it stayed 3.2 - 3.5 until I went to bed (the sweats and shakes disappeared at 3.1) and I have woken this morning (3.30am) to 3.4. I feel fine but I am having a hot chocolate drink with sugar in it to give me a boost.

That's a terrible feeling - same thing happened to me last week - too much activity for the amount of basal I was giving. And the thing is, at least with me anyway, you may only be low for a very short amount of time but you're left with an exhausted feeling for the rest of the day.

To be honest, I feel great when my level is around 3.5. Its up to 5.8 now and I feel yuck. I feel yuck mostly when its within the recommended range. The problem, though, is that theres a very fine line between 3.5 and 3 which is when I start getting symptoms and I avoid that as much as I can, usually, so I tolerate yuck.

I start feeling my sugars dropping usually at 4 - if they are dropping. If they are stable at 4 I feel fine. Lowest I've been is 1.8 and it was a struggle to remain conscious while waiting for what I had eaten to take affect.

The feeling alone is enough of an incentive to try to keep my BGs in check.

The worst I had was a 2.3 in the middle of the night. I had glucotabs which are very quick acting so I didnt suffer for long, but I never want to go there again. The three wasnt so bad.

Current reading is 5.7 and I am happy with that. HbA1c was 7.3, and thats lower than the last one. I expect the next to be down in the 5% range again. Loving my Freestyle Libre helping me stay on track.
