    I thought I was well prepared. Went to the chemist before I came on holiday to get enough testing strips if my libre failed. It did today in a busy food market. I tried to prick my finger however, the strips don't fit my reader. I felt dodgy so had half a can of fizz. My libre came back in line an hour later and showed I was close to hypo. I'm so new to this but felt dizzy and sweaty. Normal thing to feel in Singapore. Conclusion to my rant check your kit and script before leaving chemist. Sitting on a box of live fish close to a hypo isn't good
