Looking for diabetes management magazine with a low-carb or controlled-carb diet. My family member was relatively recently diagnosed and is not getting great diet education. [more inside]
I *love* buying chocolates or candy for friends and family on special occasions. It's kind of my thing, and the fancier the better. The problem is I have a diabetic in the family, and I want to send them something to celebrate an anniversary. Is there such a thing as fancy sugar-free chocolate or candy? I need something nicer than a bag of sugar-free Lifesavers.

I am a type 1 [insulin-dependent] diabetic, and sometimes at night, when I haven't eaten enough to cover the insulin I took that evening, I 'bottom out': my blood sugar goes down very low and I wake up bathed in sweat and must go searching for orange juice.
My question is about this: The nighttime sweat from low blood sugar just... stinks
. It is powerfully rank
sweat, as though I had not washed in many days. My partner agreed, he has noticed that it is different from any other sweat I sweat. "You NEVER smell like that any other time. It's a low blood sugar thing." Yet only at night! I also become clothes-soakingly sweaty if low blood sugar happens during the day, BUT it seems 'normal', the same as when I exercise.
Can anyone tell me why this might be? Why is the night-time hypoglycemic sweat so incredibly smelly? [more inside]
