    I've had this for a few days now & I'm loving the fact that I've woken up each morning at around 6.
    If I start the night a bit high, or a bit low, it takes 2 or 3 hours to make the adjustment, but then stays flat in the 6's. Very importantly I know nothing about it until I wake up in the morning.
    I could get used to this!

    Using Control IQ, overnight blood sugars are really boring. So boring that I have slept straight through quite often lately. A very rare event over the last quarter of a century or so.

    Last night (above) was particularly good.
    I'm still experimenting & for some reason my post meal readings are spiking more than they were a couple of weeks ago.
    This is the last week:
