Nice, isn't it?  You do a great job and then you can't feel your hypo any more until you are ready to go out.  I had that happen to me but I got my symptoms back.  It doesn't always work and it is a bit scary but it is short term so it is worth it to get the symptoms back.  I had to run a little on the high side for a few days.  I did that for about a week.  I ran just slightly over 150 for a week consistantly for a week.  It is much better having my symptoms back.  I was getting to the point where I wouldn't feel anything at all until things started to get dark.  If I had not gotten my symptoms back I was going to have to push to get insurance to cover a continuous glucose monitor.  They don't cover them now, but they will in severe cases of hypo unawareness.  Since my daughter would not be able to recognize or tell us about a hypo if she should need insulin we are going to do some major pushing for a continuous glucose monitor.  Right now we are fortunate enough that she doesn't require insulin.  For her, with her other disabilities and lack of ability to communicate a hypo is a terrifying thought.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.  Shouldn't I be invincible by now?

Thanks AMM - I was starting to wonder if I was all on my own on this one. Had you lost your hypo awareness for long? It's years since I last felt one and I test constantly to compensate. I had read that running them higher for a while might help to restore them, but I have found it really hard to relinquish my tight control and normal numbers.

Once your symptoms returned, did you get back to your previous control and did your regained symptoms remain? I feel so stupid and guilty if I go too low and my wife has to drop everything to get me back into the land of the living. I'm off on holiday for a couple of weeks and thought I might use the opportunity to relax the tight control and enjoy the good life for a wee while. I need those symptoms or one of these days I'll go low and that'll be the end of it!

All the best and thanks again,
