    @smc4761 It's a very good question, one which I think a lot of us ask ourselves, me for one yesterday when I woke up to a stonking 13.4
    Shake head again this morning 5.1 and I had rice for supper. I've got a little sneaky feeling growing that if I eat some real carb, you know the white stuff, it might actually give a lower number. But that's not logical is it?

    5.5 mmol before bed , 4.9 waking up. Libre showed I was LO most of the night so must have been lying on it. 99.9 % of the time I wake up if I go too low or high during sleep.

    9.3 at bedtime, so corrected aggressively as I’m really insulin resistant this week. Woke at 2am with a 9.7 so corrected again! Woke at 7 with a 6.4, so have had more NovoSluggish to hopefully stop it rising, as it’s prone to do in the morning.

    I had rice too, however I was 4.6 before bed (I did have a 8g carb biscuit), 9.6 this morning - who said T1D was logical?!
    (actually I think my scores were fairly logical)

    Last night I went to bed late, checked and BG was 4.2. i don't like to go to bed so low so had 10g of naughty carbs... A packet of Wotsits and waited till it rose to 5.6.

    Is everyone as cautious?
