dzinermom1 commented on Abbie_K's blog post 'New attempts to correct lows'
"I was told the same thing by a dietician back about nine years ago. I find it only works if it is at the start of the low. It does take longer to work and you tend to panic and over eat. It would be the only thing I would go to if I had nothing else…"

Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment.
