The Price of Patience

This is what not overtreating a low looks like. #dexcom #diabetes

A post shared by Christopher Snider (@iam_spartacus) on

These little bumps in the night are the cost of not consciously (or unconsciously) overtreating an overnight low. Rather than eat my entire pantry, I started with a couple of glucose tabs. Once that didn’t work, I had some juice. Eventually, as documented, all was well but the time spent nursing alarms and waiting for things to be “normal” is time spent not sleeping.

It’s not fun.

But it’s they expect you to react to a low blood glucose reading. But what do they know anyway?
