RE: [IPk] Bad night hypo



Dear Yvonne, no doubt others have already given you advice. If you want
to talk more, email me direct. Sounds like your absorption is a bit
erratic and for that meal there was too much insulin - or it didn't
match your digestion. A few variables...

		Hello everyone,
		>I was hoping that someone might give me some advice? I
am waiting to go on 
		pump therapy in March but i am having problems now.
		Yesterday i had a lovely tea with pasta, bread and
fruit. One and a half 
		hours later i went very quickly into hypo of 1.9. Felt
terrible but my blood 
		had been 12 before tea and i had taken my usual insulin.
I still don't 
		understand the hypo but i went to bed and my blood was
9.6 took my usual 
		insulin and when i awoke in the morning my blood was at
21.1 i had quite a 
		few ketones as well.
		I am now at a loss what to do. By the way i do not think
that i was hypo 
		because i had to get up for a wee and could not be
bothered to check my blood 
		and i did feel high! Can anyone give me some advice on
what i am doing wrong. 
		I have to say my hubby would be very interested as i
might not be so nutty 
		and upset if my blood sugars were more even. Please
help!!!!!!
		Love Yvonne.
