In basketball, a rebound is the act of successfully gaining possession of the basketball after an unsuccessful attempt to score causes the ball to strike the hoop or backboard.
Rebounds are credited to the first player that gains clear possession of the ball, or to a player that successful deflects the ball into the net for a score. If the player has achieved the rebound after an opposing player's shot, this is counted as a defensive rebound. If the player achieves the rebound after a teammate's shot, it is an offensive rebound.
Rebounds can occur when the blood glucose is in "safe" levels, say around 120 mg/dL, but the bg is dropping very rapidly.
Before a rebound, the period of hypoglycemia may be short and you may not notice the symptoms of hypoglycemia.
If the rebound is being triggered by blood glucose that is falling too rapidly, you may need to decrease the dose, change the feeding and injection timing, or try an insulin that has a more gradual onset.
