Question from Ontario, Canada:

Our 16 year old Type 1 diabetic son has high blood sugars every morning (10.2 -20.0). We check him at night and he is usually high as well (8.0 - 10.0). He takes N (long) insulin and R (intermediate) insulin at bedtime. What can we do to lower the A.M. high blood sugars?


It sounds as though your son needs a little more long acting insulin. The other possibility is giving the long acting a little earlier to see if an earlier action might help.

It is worth seeking help from your diabetes team.
