Two weeks ago I had to take the difficult decision and move Mum to a care home as her dementia needs now far outweighed what I am able to provide. She has been diabetic (very well controlled) for over 30 years and, for the last 5 years, due to her dementia, I have been managing her diet and blood sugar levels. During the last 5 years at home she has only had around 8 hypo's but, since moving in to care 2 weeks ago, has already had 4 quite severe ones (blood sugars down to below 2.4 on each). During the day her blood sugar readings are fine but, even though her bedtime reading is the same as when she was at home, she crashes in the early hours of the morning. Due to the move we have had to change GP and Diabetic Nursing Support and, after another close call this weekend, have asked for a full review of her insulin as soon as possible in the hope that a change in dose may help. Has anyone else experienced this? I can't work out what's going on and am worried that, fantastic as the night staff are at keeping an eye on her, these episodes are so unpredictable. We are all working together to try and fix this, the nursing staff are listening to/acting on my experience of the last 5 years, but we are all baffled.
