Looking for ideas…was talking with the parents of a boy I teach who has used a pump for several years. The past two months or so he’s been getting a strange bump, after he went to bed when they tested him just before they turned in for the night(ie (9-11pm)
The bump was/is a hundred points, sometimes 150, but rarely/never enough to take him to 300. They reviewed what he ate for dinner, his numbers earlier in the day, and the day before too. They asked him if he ate anything he hadn’t told them about, searched his room for “evidence” of ~cheating~… nothing found.
Its not a daily thing, just an odd pattern for a couple months in his BG that pops up they couldn’t easily pin down or account for. His food intake was a lite or relatively normal carb load, but no meaningful fat anywhere in the picture. There were no lows, or exercise induced bounces…
This weird bounce does not exist at midnight, nor middle of the night. Pre breakfast readings are textbook perfect. Their current thinking is normal growth horemones (he is growing) are the cause for them.
Curious what do other pumpers think… this a plausible reason for a very narrow time frame bump that has no other detectable causes?
