Fantasy Diabetes Device: Low Locator

May 17, 2012

Tell us what your Fantasy Diabetes Device would be?  Think of your dream blood glucose checker, delivery system for insulin or other meds, magic carb counter, etc etc etc.  The sky is the limit – what would you love to see?

When I first saw this prompt, I thought that I would definitely be using one of the extras today.  But since I’ve had time to think about it, I think I’ve come up with one.  But first: a story.  When my friend came to visit last weekend, she told me about a low experience.  She was at a friend’s house and was low. She asked her friend to go get her juice and kept insisting on the juice. It was only later she realized that there was Coke on the table in front of her.  I don’t know about you, but I know I’ve done this before as well.  I can remember in college being low at a bar.  I was complaining to my friends about running out of tabs, and one of them said “we are in a bar, want us to get you a Coke?”  It’s moments like these where low brain takes over and I just want some help.

My fantasy device is a low locator.  The meter would have a locator in it when your number is low (you’re able to determine what this number is) and it would scan the room you’re in and be able to find simple sugars for you to treat with.  Whether it’s tabs, or soda or juice or my favorite baby food.  It would help people who are by themselves and it would also help if your brain is not working and telling people to do one specific thing when there are other options available.  I know that there are other fantasy devices that are crazy technical, but I don’t even have access to all the real technical devices yet, so this is what I’m going with.  It might not be needed every day (let’s hope not!), but there are definitely days when it would come in handy.

    This is a great idea! I bet there are simple sugars laying around that I don’t even think of. The night before arriving at a friend’s house, I double triple checked that he had juice already at home, or if we could pick some up on the way from the airport. He’s all sure, we can, but if necessary, wouldn’t sugar packets in water work. Oh. Hm. I suppose so. But it’s not juice!!

    I was at a concert two weekends ago and I ran out of glucose tabs. I had a 20 oz Diet Coke with me (no help at all) so I definitely had my eye on the guy in front of me with the 20 oz REGULAR Coke. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do if he drank all of his OWN drink! LOL!
