Re: [IP] Re: bedtime snacks



Please see below, what I have sent to another group in regards to night time
lows...

You have to be careful.  There are no assurances.  Whether your child is on
a pump or taking injections, you need to make sure their overnight insulin
rates are correct (this will help in avoiding the lows).  IT is very
tedious, but you'll have to take some nighttime readings.  If they are
continually low, you need to adjust the pump setting, or the inject insulin
rates.

I was able to get hooked up on the Minimed Continual Glucose Sensor.  It
really helped me to get my night readings in order.  I personally think the
"snacks" at night to avoid lows, may be sending the readings high, which can
do just as much damage.
