Wet Behind The Ears
Wet Behind The Ears


My husband is type 1 and a recurring event in our household is me waking up to his mumbling, him bathed in sweat, semi conscious and completely uncooperative. I know his sugar is low, but several times I've had to call the paramedics just to get him to take in some sugar. The last two times he freaked out, ran around the house like a crazy person, tore off his clothes and generally terrified me.
Every time we have an incident he pleads with me afterwards to "just let my sugar regulate itself". So I've tried waiting up and seeing if he gets better. But each time the sweating, and mumbling just continue and I get more and more worried.
Any advice????

I think, If you take proper care of your husband's health in whole day. Then it will help for night time. First of all, check that if you daily meal is right or it contains any food which is the reason to make the glucose level high on night time. Exercise is also important with proper medication.
