I could not understand it or relate my T1DM to it in any way.
For the past three nights, I had been getting up from sleep to void about 3-4X during the night.
Having Diabetes is one of those Diseases where there are so many variables and factors that tweak and influence the body 24/7.
Beginning my Sherlock Holmes investigation led me to conclude that since I had moved my exercises to the later part of the evening, that that might be the variable causing these nightly interruptions from sleep.
Even-though my bs before sleep were within normal values, I decided on the third night to do a 3:00AM reading. It was 54mg/dl. The culprit was discovered that was causing my polyuria. The late evening basal and the exercise were enough to cause the Hypoglycemia with the only symptoms being Polyuria.
We are so use to having that symptom associated with Hyperglycemia, that it is too often overlooked as being in the same category as Diaphoresis(excessive sweating) which is associated with Hypoglycemia. After-all, the loss of fluids can be accomplished through many channels besides typical sweating. These include Lung Perspiration and Polyuria.
Thank you Dr. Watson
