What is the best night time snack to eat as not raise your bg during the night -- my bg before breakfast is always between 115-125 range. It is below the 130 that my doctor has for me before breakfast, but on the high side. I would like to see it between 77 and 99 before breakfast. Even after breakfast it is usually in that same range I test 2 hours after I eat. It is in the range of under 150 after 2 hours of a meal, that my doctor has set for me, but I feel it is on the high side. I would like to see it lower between 100-110.


Are these numbers somthing that I should be concerned about.
What is a normal persons blood after 2 hours a meal?




Thank you.

Greetings whitesparrow

I was diagnosed about two and a half months ago, and once I started my routine, I have been able to keep all my numbers pretty much 70-88. I know it is not always easy for some to exercise, but I do thirty minutes minimum on my stationary bike, and also some light weights, pushups, and pilates.

Because of my work I exercise in the evening after I eat dinner. And for a snack before bed I always eat something very low carb or protein. Cheese is a favorite, but also eat nuts, and sometimes berries. I also snack on sugar-free popsicles.

I eat about 30-50 carbs a day, and with the daily exercise, I think that is what has worked well for me. Try some different snacks and test to see how they work for you.

Charles:

Tsk, tsk. If you are exercising... you ALWAYS need to eat protein afterward. Your body needs the protein and amino acids to properly repair the damage to the muscles caused by exercise, and to build new lean muscle. :) The damage is normal. Excessive damage means you are going beyond what your body is capable of, so make sure to stay within your comfort zone. Resistance training is best to build lean muscle.

As for the original post... there are a lot of snacks that are very low carb and high in fiber that you could choose to eat before bed: Nuts, cheese, meats, celery, carrots, broccoli, yogurt or one of my favorites... popcorn. :)

Enjoy. :D

Regards,

My favourite night time snacks are low-joule jelly and low sugar icecream, mixed nuts and cheese or celery sticks with peanut butter - yum!

Try cottage cheese as your night time snack. My morning numbers seem lower when I do, but I haven't tested it enough yet to say for certain.

Peanut butter on a banana or apple is a good choice.
