From Mumbai, Maharashtra, India:

I am 18 years old and was diagnosed with insulin dependent diabetes at the age of 4. I want to know how a hypo, which hits me quite regularly, will harm me, and in which way (especially brain).


Hypos, unless very severe, are not likely causing damage. But, severe hypos with seizures are to be avoided. Monitor your blood sugar, and consider changing to another insulin plan if you are having regularly-scheduled hypos.
