We got a new sensor (YAY!) from a very generous person on the support listserve where I live.
So, I was sick last night. I went to bed and my husband monitored Samson’s blood sugar. I heard the alarms all night but he always told me he was watching.
This morning I woke up and noticed Samson was at a flatline all night between 60 mg/DL and 80 mg/DL. He never went below 60 during the time I was sleeping, and he never topped 80. Mostly he was cruising right around 70. My husband was on top of it and ready to correct if the drop seemed faster, and also openAPS was operating to dial insulin levels up and down, so there were two things, so to speak, that could have created a floor on a low should it have happened.
I know that many on here would consider this a good flatline, but I tend to err on the side of wanting a little buffer – so would be happier if Samson was between 80 and 100 at night. I actually think these are pretty good and healthy numbers for Samson to be at, assuming he did not ever actually dip below 60. But I guess I’m wondering what others would do in this situation – would you take a glucose tab to bump up the numbers just a touch? Or coast in that 60 to 80 range? Would your answer be different if you were a kid versus an adult?
