    Haven't posted in a while but this resonated with me. Had the same issues on lantus, as does a friend of mine. I've been a lot more stable since I moved to tresiba.. Maybe worth a conversation?

    Can also sympathise. Been type 1 for 21 years and have occasional weeks where my bloods won't behave during the night..Good luck!!

    @DJC3 Thanks not feeling too bad but a bit groggy after breakfast went up to 5.2 then dropped like a stone to 3.3 now 3,7 bloods just won't behave of late think I may have a second breakfast or snack in a while and see what happens later in the day I'll probably be in the 9's or 10's.

    It’s a rollercoaster for you at the moment it seems. I know you have other health conditions to manage as well, it must be a nightmare at times. I see in your later post you were up at 10 later on. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

    Oh goodness. It looks like it was evening out a bit towards the end though, so I hope you get a good night tonight.
