O/T My apology for any Stupid Diabetic Tricks this AM.
If I have been blathering more than usual and making even less sense, I had a notable low BG episode this AM.
My BG got down to the mid 40s mg/dl. Not dangerous but low enough to cause some functional issues.
My appologies for anything untoward I may have said and hopefully it was nothing more than a bit of entertainment for the readers.
My little brother coined the phrase 'Stupid diabetic tricks' for my low BG antics episodes. He stole the title from David Letterman's 'Stupid Pet Tricks'.
Some of my more memorable events, though I remember nothing, were getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom then going to the kitchen for some OJ to raise my BG and standing there with the frige door open drinking OJ out of the carton while peeing in the frige.
Taking the garbage out apparently while my BG was extremely low. Similar scenario. Went to the frige for OJ, put the garbage in the frige.
Modern technology has for the most part stopped the risk of that severe of an event. Insulin pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitors scream to high heaven when a precipitous drop or rise is happening.
