Basal insulin's job is to keep the blood sugar steady when there is no food digesting, bolus insulin working, or exercise taking place.  So the rise and fall you're seeing during the night probably signify that the basal settings are off.  
Fine-tuning basal settings can be a tricky business.  Here is a link that can help guide you on the process:  integrateddiabetes.com/basal-testing/    If you'd like some one-on-one assistance, please feel free to contact me directly.  My practice helps parents all over the world to fine-tune their children's insulin programs and stabilize their glycemic control.

We are here to help...

You can ask your neighbor what he uses to keep his lawn so green, or ask a friend for her famous zucchini bread recipe... But who do you ask those day-to-day questions about life with diabetes? Your medical team is the place to start, but we've gathered a few other experts here to help you out as well. Check out the latest questions parents are asking, and pose your own, too!
