hey,
I am having the same problem which I was very concerned about so I brought it up w/ my doctor. She told me that it was actually a positive thing that I didn't feel when my sugar went down till it was really low. The reason for this is because it means that most of the time your blood sugar level is at a really good level. When someone's sugar level is close to being normal for the majority of time, then their body gets used to that level and unless there is a big jump, they won't feel different. Meaning if your sugar level is usually between 80-120 (normal for a non-diabetic) then if it goes down to 70 that is not such a big jump or even 60. I don't feel my lows often till they are low 50's or even 40! It can be scary at times. My doctor advised me to test my sugar more often during the day or to lower my insulin a little so its not as low. She said she would advise me to test my sugar more often as being the best solution. I can definitely understand how you feel because it is a big concern to me. Sometimes I don't feel it till I can't see straight and feel as if I'm going to faint. I do wish you hatzlacha and if anyone else has a better solution please share it!

it is true boruch Hashem my numbers are basically like by a healthy person, I still have some of my own insulin so that helps. But I am scared that i will faint chas vesholom once and that is worse than having a bit of a higher bloodsugar.
i test my sugar already pretty often, but maybe i really have to lower my insulin. but thanks for the reply.
