Staying steady in the late evening and overnight hours is often the result of lifestyle changes; increased physical activity, improved nutrition choices, and healthy habits to lessen stress and promote restful sleep. Occasionally, nighttime lows occur as a response to physics, not habits.
If you sleep on your biosensor, this physical pressure can affect your biosensor’s ability to gather data and continued compression can result in falsely low values that can persist for hours. The next day you may notice that you accrued more Lingo Counts than usual. Here’s why: perceived overnight lows will decrease your baseline values but your glucose during waking hours will naturally rise above this falsely low baseline. If you notice significantly low overnight values and Lingo Counts accumulate faster than expected the following day, you can omit these Lingo Counts from your daily total. On your glucose graph, press on the Lingo Count value and omit the tally.
