    Hi all,type 1 diabetic for past 20 years.Made the switch from lantus to degludec as my basal insulin.Initially was great but past few weeks my blood sugara tend to be around the 15 mark all through the night then eventually drop like a stone from 5-8am so waking with a hypo and high sugars throughout night. Any advice ?

    The first place to start would be doing some basal rate testing to find out what's causing the overnight high.
