I need some advice, started a pump a while back, it's going great sugars are staying between 100-160 during the morning, afternoon and early evening which is making me happier than a mouse in Faustman's lab...
But, I go to bed around between 10-12pm, I also check before I go to be and my levels are always around 100..
But I keep waking up around 4/5 am feeling awful, I check my BG and it is always the same.. 278+!
I have taken the following action,, sugars are going high over night, so I gradually increase basal rates between 1-6am 10% each night hoping after a few days they will go down, did this for 4 nights, not a spot of difference, they even increased abit even though I had markedly increased my rates?
Right so back to the drawing board!
Perhaps I am going low, e.g. going to bed around 100, I am staying low during the night and my liver/symogi effect is kicking in and is chucking out some glucose following a protracted low and causing this high...
So I dial back the basal significantly, check at 2am, 3am etc, levels are fine no hypo.. Wake up between at 4.5am always after disturbed, weird dreams with my sugars at 275+, literally every night always the same?
So now what do I do ha?
It's such a shame as I work so hard when I am awake keeping within my target rates and this feels like a kick in the teeth, as I know I am spending 3-4 of my 24 hours with my sugars far too high :(
Any experience of this, any thoughts as to what may be going on???
