Symptoms of a Diabetic Low

Being low is the worst feeling in the world. I will be fine one second then I blink and I will be feeling horrible.

Symptoms of a diabetic low blood sugar include: sweating and shaking, blurry vision, poor coordination, dizziness or feeling lightheaded, difficulty concentrating, feeling anxious or irritable, hunger or nausea, and erratic changes in behavior.

In school, I will have to talk to my teacher, get a friend to walk with me to the nurse, then sit there for 15 minutes drinking a juice box until my sugar comes back up. I miss class, but my teachers understand and my friends help me get caught up.

If anyone knows a diabetic and realizes that they may be acting differently out of nowhere please ask them to check their blood sugar. They could be dangerously low and not know it.
