    I don't use insulin, but I can tell you how I feel when I'm low and how I treat it.

    I get dizzy, tired, hungry, and sometimes I talk really fast. I either take 3 glucose tablets or a tube of glucose gel. I don't use cake frosting or candy bars at all (mom says that hypoglycemia is a medical problem and should be treated like a medical problem, not a chance to have candy).

    Hope this helps you out!

    I'm on a pump and I take Novalog insulin.
    I know I'm low when I get shaky, tired, feel faint, and weak

    Hi,

    My 13-year-old son uses Levemir (like Lantus, but comes in a pen) and NovoRapid. (Hoping to move to a pump soon).

    The first sign of him going low is usually that he gets shaky hands. After that the other things kick in: feeling weak, sweaty, and anxious.

    I'm 19 and was diagnosed a year and a half ago. I'm on a pump and use novolog. Before that I was on novolog and lantus.
    When I'm low I literally feel like my blood is shaking, like it's got the jitters or something. I get dizzy and can't think clearly. I either get hyper and goofy and talk fast or really angry and grouchy. Gotta love those lows! :cwds:

    Insulin: Humalog & Humalin
    How to tell I'm low: tierd, dizzy, weak, shaking, & lips feel funny.

    On behalf of my 4 (5 next month) yr old daughter:

    I pump with Novolog

    When I'm lower than about 70 I feel:
    Hungry (number 1 symptom)
    Tired
    Cranky
    Thirsty
    Tummy ache

    Other times, I've felt nothing at all

    Good luck
