Hello everyone. I was wondering if any of you check your children's bs at night to see if they experience any lows while they sleep. My sons Endo suggests at every appointment that we check him for a few nights around 3am. Well it usually ends up he's fine. I was told by some type 1 friends that if his bed is soaked from him sweating it's because he went low during the night and his body reacted to raise his bs level . He has woken up like that but not a lot. This week he ended up being low 1 night. I checked him at 3am the first night and he was in range but he woke up higher than when I checked him at 3am which has me thinking he may have went low after I checked him and his liver produced some sugar. The following night I checked him at 4am as I figured 3am was to early too catch the low. Well he was 3.3, so an oj juicebox was given and I checked him again just before 5am and he was good. I will probaly check him every night now as I won't be able to sleep due to worrying if he's dropping in his sleep. Losing sleep is a sacrifice I can make. And yes he gets a bedtime snack before he goes to bed. So much for being well rested to got to work LOL!. Oh well, work sucks but that is another topic I will talk about later.
If anyone else experiences the same thing with their kids and have found ways to avoid the nighttime lows let me know.
