Weakness, trembling while sleep

User Profile

I am a type 1 diabetic and generally have good blood glucose readings.
However, for the past two days every time I go to sleep I have a weakness, trembling and much similar feeling to when I am having a hypo.

When this happens my blood sugars are a little raised to around 8-9.
It seems to go away during the day but comes back when I lay down to sleep.

Could this be related to my diabetes or could it be something else?

thank you,

Welcome to e health forum.

If the symptoms are recurrent daily at a specific time of the day, then it would seem that your insulin requirement may need a few changes.

You might benefit by consulting with your treating doctor, who can gain more history and help you accordingly.
