Hello all I am a mother of three grown children and two step children . I have type 2diabetes for about four years now. I am doing very well bp under control and blood sugars run low. I I go low fast all the time so my problem is keeping it up. I love to garden and grow my own food along with raising red wigglers. I have five grandchildren .

welcome Laura :) I'm type 2 also. Are you on any medication to help control your diabetes? Sometimes those medications can cause lows. I'm now on full time insulin myself as I no longer produce enough insulin of my own. I've experienced more hypos on insulin, although I did have hypos when I was on oral meds too. I tend to have high BGLs mostly though. At the moment I'm having troubles getting any pattern happening due to illness. Keep us posted on how you're doing.
