    So I've had my hypoband set up for 3wks now.
    Fortunate for me I've not had a severe hypo for a while.
    Unfortunately for the trial I've not really been able to retell any experiences.
    I'm still intrigued to see how this will work.

    Me too, had a few night hypos but not using hypoband. I always seem to wake if between 3 and 3.5 before full on sweat which I think hypoband alerts. Wonder which would work first, me or the band ??

    I know this may sound silly but my wrists don't tend to sweat when having a hypo so intrigued to see if it will detect my hypos?

    I normally have a severe hypo on a weekly basis but have no warning signs now.
    My husband has to use the Glucogan injection to bring me back round.
    But I'm currently 7 months pregnant and am running my sugars a little higher than normal so haven't had a hypo for 8 wks now. But still wear the 'HypoBand' at nights.

    from what I read in the Hypoband thread even if you have no warning signs the band still picks up on this as your body's temp drops even if you do not get the sweats. I personally have not used it as of yet but hope to in the future.

    Hope all goes well with the pregnancy btw

    Hi @Kerri79, thank you very much for posting a review and firstly all at HypoBand UK hope your pregnancy goes well.

    Its great to read that you have such great control on your blood sugar levels and still wearing the HypoBand at night. I am not sure if you are 'logging' your data at the HypoBand cloud, as this would give reassurance, assistance and advise, with regard your skin temperature and relative humidity whilst asleep. Therefore, provide a clearer understanding of the pattern and timings.

    Again, thank you very much for the posting and we at HypoBand UK are always available if you require any assistance.

    Hi @brett, Thank you for your posting. As you suffer from a hypo at least once a week but you are lucky as you do recognize your symptoms, it would be interesting to see which will trigger first.

    The HypoBand detects and monitors your skin temperature and humidity whilst you are asleep. If you experience a cold sweat, the HypoBand will trigger and alert family members to provide urgent assistance.
