When I was on MDi I also had this problem with night hypos – my solution was to move my entire Lantus dose to the morning. (Left me with a minor dawn phenomenon due to the Lantus not being a 24 hour insulin, rather more like 22ish for me, but I dealt with that by having a dose of novorapid immediately I woke up, regardless of meals etc.
I didnt go down the split dose route due to my digestive problems (injecting at night, however much, when I had an ‘episode’ where I stopped digesting anything was a recipe for hypos), but that would have dealt with the dawn thing, so its definitely worth talking to your DSN about trying it.
