Yesterday, my neighbor called for help and asked me to bring my Emergency Glucagon Kit. She already called 911 but, she thought I could get there faster. Her brother was having a bad low bg and they tried to give him some OJ but, he would just spit it out. I asked what his bg was but, no one had checked it. They didn't know how to use the meter. So, I checked it and it was at 43. I believe it had started going back up by the time I checked it. I'm not sure if the kit scared him or if he was able to get a little juice down but, I didn't have to use the kit.
I had to show them how to use the meter. And, I told them that if they didn't know how to turn off his pump, they could just cut the line. Just make sure he knows you cut it when he comes back up so that he can insert a new set.
Anyway, curious to hear if any of you have any similar stories to share?
