From one extreme to the other

Not that I'm complaining. I love the fact that I have a pancreas transplant and no longer have the wild swings that I had before. My kidney is doing well too. But here's the funny part. I went from no insulin production (type 1 diabetes) to reactive hypoglycemia. I was "bad" the other day and had a snack of caramel popcorn. Usually (it's been a habit for years) I eat a well balanced and nutritious diet. I just had a bit of a slip. And my blood sugar dropped to 45. Yikes. It was kind of like revisiting the old days when I overestimated my carb count and took too much insulin.

The good thing is that it doesn't happen too often. A couple of times over the last 6 months. Hurray for transplant!
