I know I have posted about this before - dealing with my son's spikes at night and I have received some great advice. Maybe I just need a little reassurance now. My son's b.g. does a pretty dramatic spike when he falls asleep around 8 or 9 pm, but then drops around 4am again. Any increases to his night time basal, sends him too low at 4am. So to deal with it, I give him a small snack and extra rapid for bedtime snack. Sometimes I again have to give him another shot of rapid at 11pm. I hate doing rapid, because it means lots of night time checks, but it is the only way I have found to get his numbers good for the night. I was talking to a woman I know in her 40's who has been a type 1 since she was 5, and she was totally freaked out when I told her I use rapid at night. She thought I was really putting my child at risk of having a low and advised me to speak with his endo right away. Interestingly, I asked if she checked herself at night and she said no, that she always wakes with a good number so has never needed to other than when she was pregnant. Anyway, am I crazy for using rapid like this?
