    Just wondering when you guys actually feel a hypo. Also i wanna chat with other teens around 14 yrs old because i haven’t chatted with a type 1 diabetic of my age in my whole life and wanna see other peoples experiences and help them.

    I’m far from 14 so can’t help with that one…. Me personally I feel hypo symptoms at about 4.2ish

    4.2ish = immense hunger
    3.4ish. Cold and tingling toes
    3.0ish cold sweats

    I can get the shakes around 4.5-5.0 sometimes higher sometimes I don’t notice till I’m under 4.0

    I hope some young teens get in touch for you
