    Good job giving OJ! Keep checking blood sugar frequently. My times after I get low and treat it, I have a rebound high and then need extra insulin. Also, have him look into getting a CGMS (continuous glucose monitoring system). It automatically checks blood sugar every five mintues and sounds an alarm if blood sugar is getting too low or too high. I've had a Dexcom CGMS for almost a year, and wish I'd had it all 16 years of being diabetic!
