Re: [IP] sleepovers



Renee

I felt I was imposing on the mom to do a later check when they were asleep.
It would have been a time they would be VERY tired!  If her sugars were ok
and they weren't running around alot where she would go low, wouldn't she be
ok?
OR is there a BG level that is a comfort
level before going to sleep?
