EDIT: OKAY...so...update on the situation below...it has somewhat resolved itself, but I still would like to know about what others with T1 have done to protect themselves. My concern was mainly with lows during sleep...these are becoming a big problem all of a sudden, strangely. I have been much more vigilant (I finally gave up winging it and reactivated the low BG/high BG alarms, and I am trying to follow them religiously), and the result of having more reasonable blood sugars is also major insulin reactions.
I'm leaving the post below as is, so it will make sense for the responses...
ORIGINAL POST: I may be changing my living arrangements very soon and moving in an apartment by myself. Right now, I live with someone. Here's my question:
What are some safety precautions for type 1 people who live by themselves? I do have seven cats and a dog, so I know that they will alert me to low blood sugars and highs as well. I have a nasty tendency to drop out very suddenly and get into trouble when I am asleep.
Any type 1's who live by themselves...what do you do to stay safe? I do not want people to be intruding in my life, calling me (as my very caring family has done in the past)...I would like to have a life without that, if there is any way that this is possible.
