I sometimes wake up and notice sweat dried on my body and had been wondering if I was experiencing lows during sleep. But the only time I have sweated when low was an extreme rapid drop to 38. I took my blood sugar a couple times when I woke up during the night and it was fine, so I figured my down comforter was just too warm for the climate here.
Then last night I stayed up reading later than usual. Around 2AM when I was ready to go to sleep I took my blood sugar and it was 60. I was nervous to go to bed that low so I waited about 45 more minutes and I dropped to 53 so I took a couple glucose tabs. So now I wonder if I am dropping low during the night a lot despite normal numbers at bedtime and when I get up? I'm not sure what would cause this; I recently split my Lantus dose and only take 6 at bedtime and 7 in the morning (I used to take 10 at bedtime).
So I'm wondering if there is a difference between your blood sugar if you are asleep or if you stay up? Does it drop lower if you are still up and don't eat? (I had dinner at 7PM). I really don't want to snack before bedtime and would prefer to change my basal, though I thought I was at the right dose to stay steady during the day.
