From Ohio, USA:

Sometimes I hear my 10 year old son, who was diagnosed 8 months ago, talking (arguing) in his sleep and he is very restless. He kicks the wall and thrashes around. A quick check usually shows a low blood sugar reading. Is there a connection between the two?


Yes, it sounds as though he is experiencing hypos during the night. If these are occurring at all, I would suggest you discuss with your diabetes team about how to prevent these happening. Nocturnal hypos are generally best avoided.
