Smoke from grilling often sets the fire alarm off and wakes up the household and neighbours
Driving with blood sugars of lower than 5 is the same as drink driving and if caught you could lose your license .....been there for another complaint .....18 months to get my license back
5? I’m regularly in the 4s. Ouch
Given non diabetic pre meal are between 4 and 6 I can’t see how this is true
@LaoDan @Andydragon the UK rules on BG and driving apply to those taking insulin or blood glucose lowering meds only (I.e not metformin).
5 is the level that you need to return to if getting hypo symptoms while driving.

Under 5 do not drive as I was taught
My dvla consultant says you can drive as low as 4 but you shod not start a journey if under 5
Hi there, that may make good sense but it's not entirely true (in the UK). If it were I would rarely be able to commence a drive at all as I am often in the 4s. A lot depends on an individuals circumstances of course (and whether they fall fast or not etc) but the Law states you CAN start off a drive in the 4s but should have a snack.
If you hypo whilst you are driving, then you MUST stop (obviously), treat the hypo and THEN wait until it's in the 5s to continue driving.
I think most of it when you read is recommended not required.. the only thing set in stone is that you cant drive when clinically hypo.. and you are classed as clinically hypo at 3.9 or below I believe.
