Driving with low blood sugar is like driving drunk

A couple of weeks ago, I was scanning the news and noticed the below article. I’m not sure what made me click on it, but I’m glad I did, because it reminded me of something that I’ve forgotten to address up until now.

Driving with low blood sugar is similar to driving drunk. Don’t do it! if your blood sugar is low, eat (always) and then either stay where you are or wait until your sugar level comes back up, but don’t get behind the wheel when your blood sugar is low. You are not only putting your life at risk, but many others that you could potentially harm.

“Ward told police he’d felt dizzy then blacked out. He also told police he is hypoglycemic and is on medication for stress.”
