I always like to describe diabetes management as having many "moving parts", meaning there are so many variables that affect blood sugars. Some of these variables we may not even be aware of, such as medications you take that may affect blood sugars,etc. To really troubleshoot a problem like frequent lows it is often helpful to use a device known as a continuous glucose monitor. You wear this for a period of a few days to maybe a week and it will analyze trending of blood sugars to help you pinpoint your problem. Don't despair, you can get answers with a little detective work.
