When Selah was first diagnosed our endo discussed nights. He didn't direct me to do anything. What he said was that in some diabetics there is the ability to recover from a low with what I now know is a rebound (he didn't use technical terms at the time, just said her liver might put out glucose) but that this was a function of the alpha cells and some diabetics seemed to have alpha cell problems too, or develop them over time, so you couldn't count on it. He also was sure to point out that if I came in and found her unresponsive not to bother checking her bg, use glucagon ASAP. Did it heighten my anxiety? I don't think so. It was good and accurate information. He didn't tell me she'd die if she went low at night, he said her body might very well protect her. But he didn't give me a false sense of security either. I'll never know why he was so direct and specific and took this approach. He may have seen cases of night lows that gave him perspective. Or he could just be a good doctor. But I'll always appreciate the information he gave me those first days, especially now that I see it's not necessarily the norm for care. BTW, he's the one who sent me here. He said there are a lot of sites out there that will give you bad info or scam you on diabetes. But there's this one, CWD, that has good info.
