From Illinois, USA:

What is the most frequent reason a child will wake up in the middle of the night with nightmares -- hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia?


Neither. Lots of children without diabetes have nightmares and I am unaware of any evidence that children with diabetes suffer any more.


Additional Comment from Linda Mackowiak, diabetes nurse specialist:

If a child with diabetes wakes up with a nightmare, I would recommend checking the blood sugar to make sure it is not low.
