LifeAfterDx--Diabetes Uncensored

Hi! I’m William “Lee” Dubois (called either Wil or Lee, depending what part of the internet you’re on). I’m a diabetes columnist and the author of four books about diabetes that have collectively won 16 national and international book awards. (Hey, if you can’t brag about yourself on your own blog, where can you??) I have the great good fortune to pen the edgy Dear Abby-style advice column every Saturday at Diabetes Mine; write the Diabetes Simplified column for dLife; and am one of the ShareCare diabetes experts. My work also appears in Diabetic Living and Diabetes Self-Management magazines. In addition to writing, I’ve spent the last half-dozen years running the diabetes education program for a rural non-profit clinic in the mountains of New Mexico. Don’t worry, I’ll get some rest after the cure. LifeAfterDx is my personal home base, where I get to say what and how I feel about diabetes and… you know… life, free from the red pens of editors (all of whom I adore, of course!).

A Four alarm fire

9:04 p.m.
3:24 a.m.
4:24 a.m.
4:29 a.m.

Those were my hypoglycemia alarms last night. I ended up eating more candy than my kid did on Halloween. Not a good night's sleep by any measure, but better to be woken up (even three times) by the Guardian than the alternative. Think about it for a minute.

Are you double checking those hypos on a fingerstick, or do you now trust and rely entirely on the accuracy of the Guardian?

Hi, new to your blog, married to a diabetic and waaaay interested in continuous monitoring. He also has hypoglycemic desensitivity after being type 1 for 30+ years.

So.... is there a specific post or a few posts that sort of lays it out there for me?? Or should I just read and read?
