Hi everyone, I am the wife of a Type 1 Diabetic. We'll have been married for two years next weekend! Let me preface this by bragging on my husband for a bit. We're both 24 and he was diagnosed at age 7 so he's been dealing with this for over 15 years. He is such an amazing person and an inspiration to me with how well he deals with the challenges of his disease. I couldn't ask for a better husband and wouldn't trade him for anything! However, I was looking for a place where I could find support. As you all know, it can get very overwhelming caring for a person with Type 1. I don't know of any other wives of diabetics in my area, so I have on one to talk to about it. Lately, we have been dealing with some scary lows at night. My hubs has been using the pump for years and it usually works out well for him. His A1Cs have been between 6-7 ever since I've known him as well (which is for the past 4 years), so I'd say he maintains pretty good control. However, as you all know, D can be so unpredicable. For the past 2 weeks, if he's been high at bedtime, and tries to take the proper amount of insulin, within 2 hours, he'll drop very low (like in the 30-50 range). This has happened 3 times in the past 2 weeks. When he goes low at night like that, I usually categorize his behavior in 2 ways: Combative or Confused. If he's confused, he will usually drink from a juice box (which is what we usually treat his lows with) with my help. However, if he is Combative, he will usually refuse to do so and it becomes a battle. It's hard for me to do anything, like get him the sugar he needs or to test. He is also larger and stronger than me, so if he rolls over or something like that, it's really hard for me to get anything into him. He'll bite the straw or generally resist any way he can. It's like the thing that will help him most is the last thing he wants! I was wondering if any of you spouses out there had any tips for me on dealing with these nighttime lows? Maybe something besides juice that would be easy for me to use to treat his lows? I am trying to avoid using glucagon if I can or having to call the paramedics, which I have had to do once in our marriage so far. Thank you!
