The rantings of a type one college student.
I've been told by my son's diabetes educator that this is true...although I've never witnessed...but I could've missed it along the way.
My doctors told me that only happens if there is glucagon in my liver at the ready. If I've already experienced a low and my supplies are depleted, I'll remain low.Not a theory I'm looking to test, but that's what I've heard.
Just like with everything else in diabetes, my answer is "sometimes". Like Kerri says, it depends on whether or not your body has glycogen (or glucagon?) ready to go. From what I understand, you have to have recently (day or two) had a series of pretty serious reactions that have depleted your glycogen stores.I've also heard that if your body automatically treats a serious low through the night, that you would have ketones present in your urine the next morning. I've not experienced that myself, but I'm also not sure just how serious the nighttime low would have to be.How's that for an undefinitive answer?
It's happened to Riley before. I think this has already been said, but if your glucogen supplies are depleted then you don't have the rebound.
