    5.9 last night before bed, 6.2 this morning - way to go! Except that isn't the whole story!

    Woke at 2:45 to 10.5 and did a correction, CGM showed I just gradually climbed from 23:00 to 01:00 and then levelled out until after my correction. :rolleyes:

    Last night my Libre told me I was near death i.e. LO , this morning 5.1 mmol. New sensor took a while to settle down despite inserting it 24 hours before activation.

    Not a very efficient gadget, having more than second thoughts about getting one. Hope you're OK
    I was 9.1 last night and 5.8 this sunny morning, weird.

    Well I made a change to my basal regime last night expecting to see some different results via my CGM over night...........except my sensor failed and I hypo'd just before bed, probably as a result of the change, was 11.8 this morning :yuck:

    1st dodgy sensor for ~ 1 year, because I get them on prescription I don't have a spare sensor so I'm going to be finger pricking alot for the next 10 days. Normally pretty good though , couldn't do without it.

    Woke up to reading of 2.7 mmol (the one touch verio gave me a more realistic 5.2 mmol) after going to bed at 5.5 mmol :)

    OK, not the gadget but the plug you stick in your arm! Can you swim in it and have a shower?

    Yep no problems for swimming / showering. The sensor guidelines say it can be immersed in water for up to 30 mins but I've been in a lot longer. I always have some surgical tape to hand just in case it starts coming loose.

    Went to bed at midnight 5.9, and woke at 5am with 2.8.

    I have had very poor management-and understanding of my required levels- hence why I just joined this site despite being a T1D for 13 years. :)

    I was on Lantus- a rather random figure of 50 units which has just built up over the years. I was switched to Tresiba 2 weeks ago and am now trying to establish what my Basel units actually should be and so not eating beyond 8pm. I have been having hypos every morning when I go to bed in the 5s and 6s. So I have been adjusting downwards. Last night I gave myself 25 units of Tresiba but as you can see I still woke to a hypo. 25 units is already my lowest since 2009. Any suggestions?

    After being diabetic for over 35 years its only really in last few years I have started to put in effort. getting a Libre last week has also helped my resolve to be better. Also switched to a fairly low carb diet.

    So most nights stop eating around 7.30 pm bed at 10.30 with BG of around 6 and staying steady most of the night with BG next morning coming in around 5 to around 8.

    What frustrates me and probably many on here is there is no consistency with my figures a lot of time. can go to bed at 6 wake up at 3am with a 3, other times go to bed with a 6 wake up with a 10

    WHY?????????
