Irresponsible Diabetic FollowUp

Irresponsbile Diabetic

I have a friend here in Monroe, at the agility trial who is a diabetic. And every year several agility friends and I meet her at a restaurant for dinner.

She absolutely scares the bejesus out of me, because at 3 different meals she has arrived at the restaurant low. Tonight was the absolute worse, and I honestly thought she was going into a seizure. She did not respond for 5 minutes didn't move, etc. The only reason I didn't force glucose gel down her throat was because she had already drank about 8 oz. of Dr. Pepper (the non-diet kind).

And yes, she drove herself to the restaurant.

I'm lucky. I can feel the low coming on. In fact, sometimes I feel like I'm low but I'm not (that happened this afternoon), but I always ALWAYS check when I feel that way.

She's a Type 1 and I do realize that most Type 1 spike from low to high quicker than I do. I also know that there is gylcemic unawareness going on, but can you PLEASE check your blood sugar and fix it before you get in the car?

Sorry, it makes me nuts.
