While You’re Waiting

Low blood sugars stink. We don’t like them. But there’s this “rule” that says you need to eat/drink 15 grams of carbohydrates, and then wait 15 minutes before you intake anything else to treat the low (otherwise, you spiral up into the crazy high blood sugar numbers post treatment-binge. Heck, sometimes that happens anyway!)

Here are a few links and other blogs to keep you busy while you are waiting, waiting, waiting, and trying to be a good rule-follower. I’m already proud of you for waiting this long!!
