    Could be that you have a very reactive glucose release mechanism. When your levels drop, your liver could be releasing some glucose. Who knows? Either way, consider yourself lucky, I hate them!

    I asked that question yesterday on the 2 hours session where we had a doc in the room. He said much the same thing about the alpha cells losing their reactivity after a while as well, so diminished response from the liver to hypos .

    Mo, took yesterday evening's basal down to a nominal 5.5, but with a 20% reduction for a night out.

    Thinking of taking the morning one down further to 2.5, and evening to 5.5 when not accounting for any other corrections

    I think that's sensible Dave, you can still react with carbs or QA should you need to during training. Thanks for all the comments everyone !
