    Okay, I know there's no such thing as a dumb question......but.......
    Everything I read says bedtime snacks are good, but I don't get it.
    I mean, if your child is going to have a 20g snack and you give them insulin to cover that, don't they just cancel each other out?
    Could you please help correct my thinking?
    Can you tell I'm a new here?

    We only do a bedtime snack (and honestly, that sounds so weird to say about a teenager! ) if he is under 100, then he snacks to get higher but gives himself NO insulin.
    I honestly dislike him going to bed with any active short acting in his system. Not sure if that's my newbie paranoia or good common sense, but we try to make the last rapid acting to be given by 6 or 7 so that he's going to sleep with only basal working on him.

This is probably because metformin is a cheap generic and isn't promoted by herds of beautiful ex-cheerleaders turned drug compa ...
