I have. Dozens of times. Each night normal range or stable bg's until
about 6:00am then a slow and then faster upward surge in bg's until
11:00am. I have done hourly bg's many times but these are not "normal
nights" as I am awake. Due to the various physical things that happen
during sleep staying up all night and doing hourly bg's has not answered my
questions. I hope experiemnting with the pump will.

Haha! LOL! boy does this sound like the establishment! At least those
