Lily has had this happen as well, we treat it as a semi-normal
occurence when it does.
Standard procedure is to eat enough glucose (by calculation) to bring
bg's to the 125-150 range, test every 20 min and repeat until stable.
Doing this usually results in bg's never falling below about 50 and
takes anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 hours to stabilize. There always
seems to be a little plateau then another small drop then stable or a
sharp rise in bg's. It does not seem to matter if she stops her
basal rate or not, but I suspect the stability is better at the end
if she leaves it running (she does stop any square bolus in process).
