I don't no when it's vobidden to drive with low shugar, but I think it's very crazy to wish to drive with low shugar!! Just imagine, you drive with low shugar like a drunken person and have a car crash. You can kill yourself and other people!! It is mutch better so eat something before driving! icon_wink.gif

HI kelly

I would NEVER drive when being low on suger. im just wondering if there is a neurological limit. in other words when is the brain too low on suger to work well enough to be able to conduct a vehicle. I know other diabetic persons who dont care how low their level is and i find this very dangerous...

thx

Dear Stikkynout

What level is too low or too high to conduct a car - in legal terms - is probably different in the different countries. Possible that some don’t even have a regulation about this. However, if you are involved in an accident, like Kelly said, things can get really ugly for you (like your insurance won’t pay anything and/or you get arraigned)

Talk to your doctor to find out what level is dangerous for you and what is too low or too high for you to perform properly. Keep an eye on your blood sugar level and take symptoms seriously. 2.6 is very low. For me, I'm unable to perform proberly with lower than 3.9.

All the best,
