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!
