RE: [IPk] Hypo control

Hi June,

Dr. Simon Heller (Univ. of Sheffield) is known as "the nighttime 
hypoglycemia guy" in some diabetes research circles. I wonder if your 
consultant would consider contacting Prof. Heller for his input regarding 
your situation? You definitely need more support for this problem than you 
are currently receiving from your team. If your situation is not resolved 
soon it is possible that you might not wake up one morning :( .

Heller's information: http://www.shef.ac.uk/medicine/staff/heller.html

Take care,
have you looked into cornstarch as a possible preventative???

My present problems did not improve last night.  Unusually for me, but to 
off a problem, I had a biscuit before bed and I have now cut my basals from
1.00 am - 5.00 am from 0.0.  At 5.00 am basal set at 0.5.  Last night at 
I was 2.4 and took 15g Lucozade.  Each quarter hour it was still down and 
further 15g Lucozade.  It didn't rise until 6.30 am and 60g Lucozade later.

I just can't work out where the insulin is coming from.  Please, does anyone
have any idea what is wrong or what I am doing wrong?  The hypos have been
going on for nearly 3 weeks now but usually earlier than last night.
