    Your body must have needed it. So long as you could be woken up and alert enough to take medication it’s not really an issue, you were just tired and needed a good sleep, which by the sounds of things you got. Keep an eye on sugar levels as they could be lower than normal due to eating less. Or higher if your body’s fighting a bit of an illness or infection which is why you needed the sleep.

    What were your sugars like when you woke up? I used to sleep that long in my youth with my diabetes (could probably do it now as well lol)

    I came back from holiday on Sunday and I have had a cold, sickness, the runs and totally worn out. My bs were sky high on holiday so hopefully it is my body telling me off and should settle down soon

    I tend to sleep a lot longer (and better) when my glucose levels go high. Makes you feel more lethargic etc, But cataches up with me once I wake up if so.
