Well, When I wake up like that, I don't even bother Testing.. I keep some Candy bars ( 3 Musketeers Mini Bars) on the Night table and take one.. Each has 10 carbs..and for that's about 50 pts.
It's just a natural Reaction now after yrs of Getting hypo's ..
They are easy to swallow and just melt in my mouth.. hardly no chewing..
If in doubt , take some.. Better to be High than Low..
I use MDI and use Levimire..so it is rare I go Hypo over nite , but it has happened when I go to bed High and Took a CB of NLog..
If persist going Hypo over nite, and if taking a Bedtime Basal, I reduce it by 20% and set my alarm for 3-4 hrs after going to bed for awhile until your confident As best possible not going to low anymore.. I increase it back up again in 10% increaments every couple of days until I get back to getting up in 100-130 range again. ( which I ave 4 out of 7 days wk )
I prefer to allow a higher Over nite BG and strive for lower BG's while I am awake
