Hi everyone. I am knew to this forum also (actually this is the first forum I have ever joined).

I am at my wits end. I live with my type I boyfriend (8 1/2 years). He has constant low sugar attacks. I mean constant! Had the squad here yet again tonight. He was diagnosed at the age of 35. No Doctors seem to be able to help. (he does go to the doc). His lows have ruined the house, furniture carpet, ect. He has also gotten into car accidents.
When I was working, there were times I would come hom at the end of the day with him cleaning up the house because he had lost the entire day in low sugar.

I'm so frustrated. I guess I just joined for some support.

Hello, welcome! I do not understand why this is happening. It does not have to happen. He is taking too much insulin, he needs to lower his basal and bolus insulin dosages. He should be using carb counting to determine his dosages. That is the way to control the blood sugar levels much better. Using an insulin pump or a CGM monitor would be even more.

How long has he been a diabetic? He should be seeing an endocrinologist (diabetes specialist). That way he can be sure he has been correctly diagnosed and is prescribed the correct treatment. If he has that many lows, it almost sounds like he is hupoglycemic, instead of diabetic.

What does he do when he is very low? You make it sound like he is tearing up the house.

Ask all the questions you want, we want to help!
