    What shape was the dip? A relatively sharp one or a smooth drop and recover? If it was the former, it's possible you lay on the sensor.

    Hi Tim,

    It seemed fairly sharp but consistent with my correction bolus downward trend. I've noticed that I seem to be more sensitive to insulin with reducing my carbs to 100g per day. This seems to reflect in both my I:C ratio and correction dose. I wonder if my BG just went lower during the night due to me being more sensitive and also still within the 4 hour bolus action time?

    I under-estimated the carb count of my "pie and beans" lunch, hence the terrible high... My 3u correction dose would have typically taken me to mid/high 5's but I got down to 3.9mmol/L. Am I right in saying this is normal when lowering carb intake?

    Here's a screenshot for you.

    Cheers,
    Grant

    Before I ended up detailing the morning BS thread, @azure kindly offered to copy over my query to a separate thread :)

    Thanks in advance,

    And here's last night's, this one looks like a natural dip and at 9u, interesting to see the difference.
