angivan replied to Karen's discussion 'Anyone else suffer from this?'
"If I am low like 55 or less, I can start talking confused or slurry. If I get over about 240 I get sleepy but still walk and speak fine. Unless you have neuropathy, your gait should not be affected by BG's within a typical range. Likely not T1D…"

About a month ago her parents hooked up a little back bike, not sure what it is called, to her mom's bike and she was so scared to try it, but I finally talked her into it and now she can't get enough of it.
