Hi and thanks for using the forum.

OK, your son needs  to keep a diary of his blood sugars, what and when he is eating, and how much insulin he is taking.  He then needs to take that info to his endocrinologist or whichever doctor is managing his diabetes.  Something needs to be adjusted since his lows are really low and he is waking up with a high sugar.  Good luck.
