I have been t1 diabetic for 6 years, and have always had close to perfect control, but this past couple of months have thrown me for a loop! The first part of January, I started getting really low in the mornings. Like, really low. Like, I don't wake up, low. Over the course of two weeks, I took my lantus back from the 28 units I was taking to only 10 units before I was back to normal levels. Over the course of the month, I have slowly been increasing my lantus (to continue to see stable numbers from night to morning) up to 20 units, but it is happening again! Last night I only gave 10 units, and still dropped 50 points from bedtime to waking up. I am confused what is going on, and would like to know if anyone else has any advise or experience with something similar. I don't know what to do about it, and I don't know how to predict when (or if) it will come again, which is frustrating to me, since I've always been so in control.
