Re: [IP] Hmm interesting



Summer to hear about your struggles.  Nighttime is very confusing, and I
think I'm a freak because I have a REVERSE dawn phenomenon.. at 4 am, my
basal has to drop because my Insulin sensitivity goes UP around that time.
I wake up low after a night of good BG's unless that basal drops in the
early morning.  Similar struggles for oppossite reasons!
Oh, and just an idea... if your BG's are going up at bedtime, it's might not
be dawn phenomenon, it may be
dinner-sitting-in-the-gut-weighting-to-digest-once-youre-sleeping
phenomenon, and I HATE this one!  Pizza, Doritos, and Chinese food are the
worst for this one for me.  I can eat pizza at 7pm, and at 9pm have good BG,
then at 10:30pm, have good BG.  Go to bed and wake up at 2am with HIGH bg,
ugh. You may be on to something trying that square wave in the evening
before bed.  Good luck!
