    actually it really depends on the presentation of each patient. i've had pts that read in the 30's and were still asymptomatic but have had others in the 40's and were starting to bottom out. if i know the patient not to be feeling sick and/or anorexic, i will give the long acting insuling with a low blood sugar. but i've also poured sugar or chocolate syrup into the buccal mucosa when i was losing them and this is after i gave glucagon. i follow each diabetic pt. very closely w/proper follow up. i just can't rubberstamp identical interventions for all patients.

    Relating what happened isn't gossiping....I just felt sorry for the nurse.
