    I have been as low as 1.0 several times, and was out of my mind every time.

    I needed to be given the glucagon injection by my mother each time.
    Some of them where very close calls, it was only when my dog went for help that my family realised something was wrong.
    My dog isn't a trained hypo alert dog but that is exactly what he does.

    I think the lowest I've been is 2.2 mainly down to injecting too much after a meal, was quite a while ago and my symptoms were pretty bad. But I was once as low as 2.3 without a single indication, scary thought how different your blood sugars affect your body at different occasions!
