I wake up to my nocturnal hypoglycemic episodes through diabetes in my dreams. If I'm low, I will usually dream that I'm extremely high and I need to check my blood. Its crazy that my subconscious can tell me that I need to get up and check it! I'm very thankful for it.
So far I haven't had a dream about Diabetes. I did dream I was eating all sorts of wonderful carbs and when I woke up I thought 'oh I can't, I'm diabetic'.
I am usually diabetic in my dreams but I have had several dreams that I was walking around without my walker and when I realized I was walking without my walker, I couldn’t find it. I have also had both wheelchairs & walkers stolen in my dreams. Guess I really want to get rid of that walker!
I have extremely bizarre dreams, in which food is the least of my dream-self's problems, so it's never come up :)
Excellent question Robyn :-) I would like to add one little statement here that I saw on an Endo's desk. "Obstructional sleep apnea causes problems in the proper management of diabetes" - and it holds very much for my case atleast.

Now, I don't try and keep awake for late night shows (until its one of those Bond movies) - alas, may be because I don't have Conan, Jay Leno or Larry King here in India I guess :-)

If you are dreaming, that mean's you are generally sleeping well, isn't it?

Also, I saw in NatGeo that a human dream doesn't last for much time, I don't remember the time exactly.

But it does have a tremendous effect on your next day, you may have a bad hair day or a blooming sunny day ahead - depends on what happens in the previous day/night mostly, I guess!!!
Last night I had crazy dreams....very strange. I was not diabetic.....doesn't even come into the picture at all. Like it!! Very interesting replies....thanks!!
I don't think so, I don't usually eat in my dreams.

BUT a month or so after I started on the pump, I dreamed I was outside gardening & my pump got detached & rolled under a hedge, I couldn't reach it, I remember straining & straining in the dream. So I went around to the other side of the hedge, but as I got there a rabbit picked up the pump in it's mouth & made off with it! At which point I woke up with a sense of panic, where's my pump? It was still attached & everything looked fine. I think I tested & my BG was a bit low. The hedge looked nothing like anything in my garden.

I may have had a few more pump dreams but nothing as vivid as that.
Wow. I have "Panic" dreams, but never about insulin, testing, etc.
I dream everyday,of everything I see, rational and irrational ,of people I know and people whom I don't know,so it's pretty weird that I haven't had a diabetes related dream.
Yes! Mostly in an anxiety oriented way. The other night I dreamt that I swam to an island and then realized I had no source of sugar with me and would probably get low from the exercise. I was alone and panicking in my dream. Then I checked my CGM (even though I wouldn't be able to check it or wear my MM pump if I were swimming) and it read 181, so I hurried back before I crashed.

D frequently enters my dreams. This is the latest example, but it happens regularly.
