I'm worried about having a hypoglycemic reaction

Hypoglycemia can be scary when it strikes, because you can feel dizzy and shaky without warning. These symptoms are your body's way of telling you that your blood glucose dropped too low, but there are ways to prevent it from happening. For the most part, hypoglycemia won't happen as long as you're eating a healthy diet, checking your blood glucose levels regularly, and taking the proper dose of insulin.
