Hi Keith, I have been a type 1Diabetic for 50 years and have been on injections since the start, I am now on the insulin pump, which is brilliant. Do you attend hospital appointments with your wife, if so ask about training for spouses there may be something out there. I find that Jelly Babies help, or Midget Gems or even as a last resort Hypo Stop, which you can get on prescription, it is ideal for rubbing onto your wife's gums and absorbs quite quickly.

I'm aged 74, on an insulin pump, but get hypos rather often, especially in hot or cold weather..You do not necessarily need to worry about them. I find the best treatment is 1 bottle Glucojuice (from Boots) with two Glucotabs. That will give 23 grams glucose and fast relief.  Do not use chocolate or jelly babies,or anything else with fat in it because this will slow the action of the glucose. Good Luck.
