More low adventures

Time for another hypo rant!

This morning my diabetes clearly didn’t want me to be waking up early for a 6 hour orientation at uni.
So it decided to give me a level of 3.6 (under 4 is a hypo/low blood sugar)

Then the hypo from the depths of the underworld came along- yes it deserves that title.

Tonks arrives (Medtronic Minimed 640G)

And a fancy new blood sugar meter to go with her! This one sends my blood sugars straight to the pump.

Here's hoping I don't put this one through an X-ray machine too...
