Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum as I have a query about the above issue. I have been diabetic for 17 years and have had good control for this duration. However recently I have been having significant problems with hypos at night and biting my Tongue in particular. The latter issue causes me pain for up to a couple of weeks and there is usually a
lot of bleeding all over my pillow
I've tried to consider whether there has been any change to my routine which may have caused this and I cannot think of anything. I exercise very regularly and am aware now that I should reduce my insulin by more than normal when I do this. However my exercise routine has not really changed over the last year or two so I don't know why I am having problems now.
I test before bed when I can however there are occasions when I cannot do so. I find that any reading over 10 is necessary for me not to have issues at night.
So I'm wondering if anyone else has had any issues with tongue biting and if they have found any way to counteract this occurring? I have had nights hypos before, but not where I have bitten my tongue.
