    Question about nighttime glucose highs

    I'm not sure what to do (if there is anything) about a high (395) reading after my child is asleep. Can I give him, say, humalog, during the night to get him to lower his glucose?

    Hello.

    This is really something you need to discuss with your child's doctor asap. If they have an on-call service, I would call that now for advice.

    I pray you can get answers and a resolution very soon.

    NEVER, ever correct with insulin without eating as well!!
    a dangerous low blood sugar may occur (especially if you or your child are asleep) and you may not wake up to feel the low, resulting in seizure or even death

    very dangerous. best to just wait and see in the morning, then contact the doctor, insulin levels before bed may need to be adjusted.
