Does anyone else struggle with the practical realities of testing before driving? I have a high pressure job and commitments outside of work that mean my life is one constant rush. I drive and test, but find the '5 before you drive' rule really impractical. I know it's important and the margins are set high to keep everyone safe, but I struggle with the effects. I function perfectly at 5 below, and good diabetes control means I am quite often below 5 without actually being hypo. I have excellent hypo awareness, and most of my journeys are less than 30 mins long. I test before I drive, but frequently find I am a bit below 5, so have to eat a snack that i do not want, often ultimately over-shooting my medical BG target of 5.9, pushing my HbA1c (and my weight) higher than it needs to be. My blood sugar can take quite a while to raise to the required lel, by which time I have missed my meeting, my health appointment, or other deadline. I am fed up of being so embarrassingly late for things. Has anyone got any good tips for how you streamline things to stop the testing rule from taking over your life?
