What does a low feel like?

October 3, 2019

What does a low blood sugar feel like to you? We connected with our community members on Instagram and the responses felt varied (but familiar, in that way that T1D always does) – “Cold.” “Panic.” “Into the void.” “Like I lose all connection with the world … a panic from the inside slowly approaching with sweat and I lose the concept of time …” “Weak, tired, and sometimes angry.”

The symptoms of a low blood sugar vary from PWD to PWD, and then can even change over time. Those moments can be scary and overwhelming, and they are unfortunately common in life with type 1 diabetes. But with awareness, advancements in technology, and advocacy, low blood sugar can be corrected quickly and safely.
