Diabetes, frequent episodes of GI virus, drop in blood sugar, panic feelings with vomiting, chilling and bloating after Humalog. Suggestion?

I have type 1. Several times right after a pump bolus of Humalog I have eaten and then discovered that I have a rapidly developing GI virus (I am guessing Noro). My blood sugar will precipitously drop and I have the most awful hypoglycemic reactions with incredible panic feelings from the adrenalin. I am vomiting and I am bloated and chilling. What is the best thing to do when I am alone? Would I take glucagon myself? Or just try to force down juice?

Type 1 diabetes needs insulin for control of blood sugar but you should not have frequent hypoglycemia episodes you can take sugar or sweet juice in case of emergency but adjust your diet and dose of insulin so as to avoid hypoglycemia. Disscuss the problem with your Endocrinologist.
What is your age as during hypoglycemia self injection of glucagon may not be possible some time.
