Re: [IP] A fear of mine



This may sound weird, but I used to target my sleeping blood sugars to be in
the 65-80 range, with 65 being optimal.  I find it very difficut to sleep
when my blood sugar is high, and much easier when it is low.  Now I target
them for 100, and with the pump, it is much, much easier.
