What does it mean when a diabetic goes low?
Sugar breaks down into energy, so it is like a battery to keep the body running. Non-diabetics have the ability to keep their body running right without doing anything. Diabetics though need outside help. Since their blood sugar is regulated by people, instead of their bodies issues arise. One such issue is a low blood sugar.
Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia can result in seizures, coma, and death. “Lows” are something that Diabetics and their families battle daily.
Warren Retriever families do not have to battle them alone.
Today we bring you a story about Skittles and a low that he kept from becoming dangerous.
Nose to my leg…..
Em’s bg was 70 with 2.4 units on board!!
It would have been a TERRIBLE low but because of Skittles’s awesome nose, Em never has miss a beat.
Drinking some coke and watching Princess Diaries 2!!
