I am a type 1 for about 28 years now. On a pump with a sensor that works fairly well. I have had episodes in the past (like 15 years ago, pre pump) where I had severe lows in the middle of the night. My issue now is I still overcompensate at night because I can't trust this won't happen again. My basal at night is 1/4 of what it is during the day but I still feel the need to eat a snack before bed AND cut by basal even more overnight if my sugar is 150 or below before going to bed. The obvious result is I wake up very high the next morning. Does anyone else have this problem? If so what do you do to get over the fear of having more lows?
