    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    To Pepe51 - new post

    Pepe51, You added to an old post on Ideal Blood Sugar three weeks ago. You asked if 42 -70 indicated "diabetic unawareness". I'm not sure is that is the exact term, but I think you are referring to hypoglycemic unawareness which is when your blood sugar drops well below 70 and you are not aware of the symptoms and don't treat the low by taking glucose to raise it. In any case, if your blood sugar drops to 42 and you do not know that it is necessary to treat a number that low, I would say that you may be unaware of MANY of the problems of diabetes. Please read more of the posts and expert information on this site.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
