What’s up with not feeling lows? When C was diagnosed he’d consistently feel them in the 90s, 80s, sometimes 70s. Once in a blue moon he’d go lower and it made us panic. His rule at school is if he’s under 60 he needs to call me so I’m aware. He’s been calling me way more that normal.
About a week or so ago he came in my room and said he “might” be low. I think he was 35. A few day later was on the trampoline and his brother ran inside yelling that he was low. 38. Last week he called from school at 40.
Last night he comes in my room, “I think I’m dropping low. Even if the meter says 100, I think I’m dropping fast so I should probably treat it.” 37.
It’s stressful for both of us. He understands clearly that not feeling it until that point is a big big problem. I understand clearly why I don’t want him leaving my side and why it’s so damn hard to let him run around the neighborhood with friends.
Is it normal to lose the awareness of a low? Is he getting “used to” lows and now not catching them until later or what?
