Our 8-year old son was diagnosed on 5/13/09, and he has, up til this point, been pretty sensitive to lows. I have been able to catch his drops before they get much under 80 because he displays symptoms, such as suddent intense hunger, edginess, dark circles under the eyes, and sitting on the floor wailing "I don't want to die". Not too hard to miss for a mom who is in tune to her kids, or even for one who's not that in tune.
Well, we've been on vacation for the past several days, and William has had a couple of non-symptomatic lows. Nothing severe, but tonight after a full day at an amusement park (during which I consistently under-dosed his meals) followed by 1/2 hour of swimming, he tested at 58 and barely registered a "yeah, I'm kinda hungry".
So, I guess what I'm asking is, is this a sign that he will be someone who cannot tell when they are going low, or is this just because he's in a completely foreign environment and experiencing a different level of activity? (I'm hoping for the latter) I'll certainly be mentioning this at this next appointment (Oct 2nd), but would appreciating some ground-level input before that happens. (P.S. We're on a practically new batch of test strips that I control-tested, which has also registered highs up to 328, so I'm pretty sure it's not the testing that's off).
So, any ideas, guys?
