    What action did you have to take, if any, when you tested your child's blood sugar during the night?

    overnight

    9:30 PM 82 (too low for bedtime) Child still awake watching movie

    Gave small yogurt drink and 4 vanilla wafers
    Gave insulin for all but two cabs to give a cushion overnight

    6 AM 221 (gave correction) You see the reflection of the 2 extra carbs here

    Will probably get up for breakfast at 8 AM

    I didn't check overnight since I felt everything was fine.

    tested at 12:30a to get a result of 440!!!! turned on light only to find, for the first time ever, the site had come out. So, at 12:30a, gave a correction via syringe, did a site change, stayed up for two hours to check BGs.

    Wacky day. She had crew camp at 5pm and test on the way in was 397! Think she didnt cover her carbs for lunch, teenagers! Bolused for it, dropped her off to take my other kids to gym class, was back in 20 mins, they were already on the river. 6:30 when it ends, she tells me the site fell out when she got there and she didn't want to hold up the boat so she didn't tell anyone. Test at 6:30 was 188 so exercise worked. 10:30 she was 116. I overslept and tested at 4am, she was 330. I think it was a rebound high. Frustrating.

    thank you we were struggling with higher numbers for a while. I was increasing basals and I:C ratios like crazy LOL! So it's nice to see some in-range numbers now.

    Not typical night anymore, but not overly untypical either. Corrected each of these highs, she's in range now. My best guess is a day running a little too high led to resistance, then a fatty dinner and snack led to delayed absorption and fat spikes in the middle of the night.

    Long night for me. I am not in the camp of checking every night no matter what. I check according to what his BG is at 11:00p and if there are extenuating circumstances such as illness or extra activity. Yesterday was a "normal" day, but his number at his bedtime was high (214). He had those potato "Smilers" things at dinner, and I can't remember the last time he had them, but I bet that was the culprit. However, the meter said he still had IOB on board and wanted to subtract it out when he had a bedtime snack. I'm having a lot of trouble with that lately. I gave him a little more than it suggested, and he said he felt shaky at 9:00p so I checked him and he was 180..no action. At my bedtime, 11p, he was 134 with a teeny bit of IOB from his bedtime snack. No action, but it made me want to check him later. At 2:40a, he was 94, which made me nervous, so I reduced his basal by 30% for 3 hrs. At 4a, he was 120, and at 7a he was 141. This was an unusual amount of getting up for me...I'm tired!

    Treated a 400 that was out of character, put a new site in since I had just inserted another new one at bedtime. He was sporting 3 sites this morning :D. Removing them hurts him so I didn't want to risk waking him. Removed the 1st new site to see that the cannula was doubled over, didn't even make it into his body :confused: Morning BG - 106 :)

    5 PM 279, was running +10% due to suspected growth spurt
    changed site
    7PM 204
    8 PM 143
    9 PM 160 she usually goes up at this point so I left the +10% running
    12 AM 123 turned off the 10%
    1 AM 123 flat line is good
    6:30 189 gave a correction
    9:30 96 no breakfast spike, leaving off the 10%

    We go on vacation tomorrow, first trip with the pump so all hell could break loose.

    So what our informal poll shows us is that the majority of people caught either a high bg or a low one. For me, that is just more evidence of the importance of checking at night, even if things "seem OK".
