So, as I sit here having been woken up by a blood sugar of 2.2 mmol/L (40 mg/dl)—don't worry, I've eaten Skittles—it got me wondering:

At what level do you typically wake up from a low blood sugar?

For me, you're pretty much looking at it.

Except on occasion, I might wake up around 3.0 mmol/L (54 mg/dl) if I haven't had any low in the previous few weeks (which means I'm almost definitely running too high in general).

Otherwise, around 2.0 - 2.2 (35-40 mg/dl) is pretty much it. (I do feel lows at higher levels during the day. Just for some reason, if I'm sleeping, I get this low before I wake up spontaneously.)

What about you?

Buddy, I don't know what to say other than I hear you, I've been there, and I am sorry you're going through it all - *hugs*
