I try to keep my blood sugar above 4.0 mmol/L (72mg/dl) at all times.
Especially during the night.
Occasionally I stuff up, and it dips into the threes. A little too much insulin injected, a bite or two less into my pie hole at dinner, or a slightly faster pace or longer distance during my daily walk will do it.
Rarely do I sleep through a hypoglycaemic episode.
Instead, I have vivid dreams about food and my inability to get it.
Or, deeply frightening nightmares.
