So about 4 weeks ago, I posted here how my nightly BGs kept running up in to the 250s by 5am (for like 3-4 months). I could not figure it out. One of the members suggested upping my basal at night,…Continue

"A morning high that responds well to a correction probably means that you're not going low overnight. Don't put too much stock in others with a lower total daily dose. They may have more endogenous or internal insulin production. I've…"

"Hey Jason. A couple of thoughts. I have found that mysterious rises in basal requirements can sometimes be a harbinger of impending illness - cold, flu or even a mild infection/inflammation, especially teeth/gums. Another cause can be some…"

"I have type 1 diabetes. I have restless leg syndrome which sounds like the same thing you are experiencing. It starts about 9:00 - 10:00PM. To counteract RLS my doctor prescribed one mg of ropinirole at 8:00 PM. It really has made a big difference…"

It's nice to meet you Jason!

Your story is very interesting. Sounds like you've been through a lot. I'm glad that you have found out that insulin helps. It's a life saver for me as well :) I saw that you read my bio so you know how I become a diabetic. In many ways it has saved me, I try to be the healthiest I can be. Do you have a family? I see you're a Market research-Analyst. What exactly do you do?
