    hi all,

    i'm using levimer and although i feel my dose is spot on because i wake up with the same BG i went to sleep with i'm still a newb so is this really ok? just wondering if our BG should ideally drop a little overnight so our organs etc are absorbing enough glucose?

    If you are constantly waking up with the same BG as when you went to bed I would say that you have your levimer spot for your night control...

    Don't forget the purpose of Levimer is a background insulin which tackles the glucose that the liver makes and dribbles into your system.. so it sounds as if the body is getting it's correct supply, and the levimer is doing it's job..
