My son is just past one year living with Type 1 and I recently stumbled upon a reference to Dead in Bed syndrome. The information I found scared the crap out of me, but our endo nurse practitioner said, while she has heard of it, she's never seen it with her patients. I was just wondering two things:
1. Does anyone know anything about this syndrom? http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/d_0n_g00.htm
2. We give our son a pre-bed snack (mix of low-glycemic carbs, protein and fat) to keep him from getting low during the night. Does anyone have general suggestions for such a snack (carb total, types of food, etc.)?
