#The Lowdown2019 Hypos!

Diabetes Australia have launched a campaign about hypos, #thelowdown2019 and it’s an opportunity to increase conversation around hypos.

Thanks to technology (pump consumables for which I’ m grateful to Australian taxpayers for making them reasonably affordable) and my Private Health Insurance (through which I can get the 10k a pump costs reimbursed) my hypos are pretty mild. This wasn’t always the case though, back in the days of Protaphane and Actrapid, I had some pretty worrying hypos.

The hypos where I felt like my brain was in quicksand and there’s just no way to ingest glucose quickly enough to stop being pulled under.
