History: An elderly lady with a history of diabetes mellitus who just switched from metformin to insulin is BIBA for sweats, light-headedness, nausea, and SOB, all lasting about 1 hour. Her glucose was measured at 68 by medics and symptoms resolved after juice and food that she was consuming as medics arrived. She denies any chest pain, abdominal pain, vomiting, or other complaints.
