Patients Diabetes (Type 1)
Topic of the discussion
Posted on 6/10/20 11:08 AM
Hi all, my diabetes has been very well controlled through the years but for the last 2 nights I have been kind of scared because around midnight my blood sugar level drops very quickly and very low - 0.40 and I really have difficulties to get it up despite eating some sugar or bread.
I have not changed anything in my habits. I have been at 8 units of Lantus and between 2 and 5 units of rapid acting for several weeks now. A1C has been at 6.4 but for the last 2 days I have been dreading going to bed. Can someone help me? Any ideas? How do you manage your severe hypos?
Thank you in advance.

Have you ever experienced nocturnal hypoglycemia like jndr11 describes? What do you do to treat it?

@jndr11 Huh interesting. Has it happened after you've been physically active during the day?
