My 8 year old son was recently diagnosed 10 months ago. The most difficult part of managing his blood glucose is at night. His dinner is low carb and lightest meal of the day. His blood glucose will be steady for hours before bed and right when he falls asleep his blood sugar begins to rise. In fact, it rises more once he falls asleep than it does when he actually eats a meal. He will be in the low 100’s for 2-3 hours before bedtime and after falling asleep he will be in the 200’s within 1-2 hours. He sweats quite a bit during this period of time. We try to correct the high with 1. -1.5 units, but it almost seems he becomes insulin resistant as it has very little effect.
Has anyone experienced this and if so, what seems to help prevent these high? Again, it’s like clockwork, once he falls asleep his glucose rises regardless of his dinner.
