hi guys
I'm in a spot of bother this morning it's half 4am and I haven't slept a wink - insomnia  - has kicked in top gear and I am not sure why.  I've just finished my last meal so do I fast for a normal 'faux sleep' of eight hours or do I have breakfast in 2-3 hours time??  This is the first time I've had my insomnia while diabetic, so I'm at a loss as to how to manage it...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Its up to you.  Are you hungry now?  Will you be hungry in 2-3 hours time?  if so, eat.  If not, don't eat.  Don't take any Novorapid unless you eat and dose it accordingly to what you have eaten.

hi Kit - thank you so much -  no I'm not hungry at all now but I might be in 2-3 hours ... I am also getting the first lot of injections for anemia this morning

so its ok to just wait and see if I'm hungry or not and fast if I want too??

Fasting isn't a requirement, just what people tend to do because they are sleeping anyway.  I normally like to keep a schedule, but if something happens to mess that up, then I just go with the flow and get back on schedule later.

 

One thing I would recommend is to keep a little closer look at your numbers.  The lack of sleep and a modified eating schedule may cause your insulin needs to be a little different than normal and you want to make sure there aren't any accidental highs or lows.

ok, that makes alot of sense I like keeping to a schedule and you can't 'schedule' stuff like this...I'll go with it, listen to my body and see what happens.  My readings are slightly off, raised, but only by 1.0 and I'll keep a close eye on them, drink more water.  I don't really want to sleep until tonight now, if I can, that way tomorrow will be back to normal...once again, thanks so much
