Hello! My teenage daughter is using the Omnipod 5 (have been for about 6 months). Initially it was just so freaking awesome that she wasn’t having ANY lows! A literal miracle.
Now, 6 months later, she’s having quite a few lows at night. I’m not sure what to adjust. These lows occur in the middle of the night and when I check, she doesn’t have IOB (like the pump adjusted down to prevent the low). The lows are between 60-70mg/dL.
Would the first thing to adjust be ISF?? Since there’s no point in adjusting basal rates, and since there isn’t a carb bolus on board when this happens, there’s no sense adjusting that.
One other variable I’m suspicious about is she may be eating a light snack before bed without bolusing, and it may be raising her BG enough for the algroithm to think she’s going up naturally, and giving her a bump in basal rates. But still, she shouldn’t be going down to below 70.
