  • 1.  Question for Katherine

    Hi Katherine

    Can you explain to me why I have waves of higher and lower readings of my BGL.
    Whole my live as a Type 1 diabetic (49  years ) my BGL goes in waves. Periods higher, periods lower. At the moment for 5 months now I'm on the lower side with many Hypo's. My normal HbA1c is about 7.1    7.2.    2 month ago I was 6.9. Awful, too many Hypo's.  Now I'm still on the lower side with too many Hypo's.  Just last night before bed, I had 7.3. By 1 o'clock I dropped till 2.6.  Why..?
    I had used every night before bed at 23.30      30 units of levemir. That works good if my reading is about 8.5 before bed. I would say, to much levemir, but my Endo said to me don't change that.
    My body starts to react if becoming under 5.
    Can you explain what is going on???
    Thanks
