    Hi there,
    I’m a type 2, diagnosed 2 years ago. I actually read somewhere that low blood sugar was rare, but I have had what I’d consider low for me, more than I am comfortable with. As a matter of fact, I’ll run low more often than high, but it depends on my weight too, it’s like a seesaw.
    my lowest has been 80. not bad, but when my dietician saw it, she freaked, and it freaked me out. from what I read, I thought 80 was normal. another time she tested, it was 84, and a time before that..89. for some reason, going to the clinic leaves me on my best behavior, so I exercise early that day, and cut my portions slightly lower than normal. I can’t do that everyday though, too depressing. I guess I need to be depressed to do what I need to do.

    I’ve had a handful of readings in the 40′s the last few years. I’ve landed in the 30′s two or three times before too. Not fun at all. Lows that low just feel awful.

    Once or twice a year, I get to see a number in the 30s pop up on my meter. I might have seen a number in the high 20s once, I’m not quite sure (if it happens, my first thought isn’t to commit it to long-term memory!)

    Anything lower would have been a test done by someone else while I wasn’t in a state to observe. I think I might have been 19 during one of those…

    I had a 28 blood sugar once – And once was enough!

    Nothing like a low low to ground you! Glad you’re ok and the Munchkins helped you through. The lowest blood sugar I had was 37. I was shaking, dizzy, sweating and light-headed but instead of grabbing for the glucose tabs and sugar, I took my clothes out of the washing machine and put them into the dryer. You could say I was a bit confused.

    My lowest since then has been 50-something.

    I got down to 38 at one point. That was the lowest recorded so far for me….. I hope I never see that one again.
