When I went hypoglycemic, I had dizziness, headache, hunger, and extreme chills (I couldn't stop my teeth from chattering, even in a hot bath). My husband gave me some soda and then I went to the ER. Later, I found out about how Smarties are the cheapest way to get your glucose up when you're going hypo. Haven't crashed that bad since then; if I wake up with a headache, I grab some Smarties and water. I dion't know if this helps your daughter or not, but I thought I'd mention some other symptoms and what I do about it.

Thanks, we use the Dex 4 tabs, but smarties sound so much more delectable!
Cheers
