If it is low, then I will offer to help her find something to eat or drink.
If it is too high, then I know not to suggest having a meal right away.3. I generally eat on a structured schedule – breakfast before going to work, lunch around and dinner when I get home from work.
It’s important that whoever I am dating understands what it means to have and manage diabetes, and the sooner they know that, the better.
If you do this, however, you may not feel comfortable asking your partner for a break from sex in the case of a low blood sugar and put yourself in a dangerous situation.
However, one with diabetes might not always be able to eat on such a structured schedule; it may depend on his/her blood glucose level at the particular time.
In my relationship I have learned to be more flexible in my meal/snack schedule, but we have also communicated that to each other that if one person is hungry and the other isn’t (or can’t eat at that particular time), then it is acceptable to go our separate ways.
Sex is an intense physical activity and as any Type 1 diabetic knows, this can cause a fast drop in blood glucose level.
Make sure your partner knows how to care for you in case you experience a severe low blood sugar level and are unable to care for yourself.
