This last weekend while camping in the middle of the night one of the children camping was screaming for help because his dad(a type one diabetic about
46 yrs old)was loudly moaning,passing out for about
15 seconds at a time,confused and unable to communicate. I went in their tent and checked his sugars, he had a 33 mg/dl. I gave him some glucose tablets (I too am a type 1) and after a short while he was fine.
What I don't get is when my levels drop to their 30's I feel a little light headed and slightly nausish.Thats it. No other symptoms. This guy looked like he was hit by a train. He was way out of it. How come we have such diffrent reactions to low blood sugar? Is age a factor?(I'm 32,he is in his late 40's)
