Experiencing hypoglycaemia can be frightening, and can result in a real fear of further hypoglycaemic events.

Hypoglycaemia can occur for a variety of reasons and is usually the result of excessive insulin in the body. This causes low glucose levels in the blood stream, taking away the critical source of energy that the body and brain need to function.

I opted for the pump after a long period of hypos, which would also occur at night. My girlfriend woke up one night because I had convulsions. She dragged me to a cold shower, gave me some sugar. After that I asked my doctor to try the pump, since I read a lot of positive experiences about it on the internet. I then started wearing it.- MARCO
