I found this group at 1:30 this morning while treating my son for a low. Nine glucose tabs and 2 hours later, I finally went back to sleep. I promised myself to join this group today and try to get some support and input from others in the same boat. So here goes…
I am a single mom of a 17 year old high school junior who has had T1D for 9 years. My son is on the Omnipod with a Dexcom G5 cgm. He seems to have hypo unawareness overnight. After having a few overnight lows in the 20s, the doctor recommended the cgm. The problem is he does not wake up for any of the alarms. I am very concerned because he will be going off to college soon and I won’t be with him to treat his lows. Does anyone else’s kids have this problem? Do most kids feel their lows overnight?
I would love any input or comments on this problem. Thanks in advance!
