While it may seem difficult to figure out whether you’ve had hypoglycemia in your sleep, there are some clues.
• Pajamas or sheets are damp with sweat in the morning
• Restless sleep or nightmares
• A headache or feeling of tiredness when you wake up in the morning
• Ketones in your urine in the morning without a high blood glucose
You may want to check your blood glucose around 2 or 3 a.m. a few times to try to match your results with your food intake, physical activity, and medication doses from the previous day and evening. This will help you pinpoint what is really going on.
