Why does a late night snack always spikes glucose no matter how much insulin added?

Has anyone had this happen to them? Any help or enlightenment would be appreciated. 

 

I’ve experimented with timing many times for my meals.  Now it seems that if I eat anything, whether containing carbs or being relatively carb-free, and consume it after 7:00 pm my glucose will spike during the night. Even if I take extra insulin beyond what it necessary normally for the foods consumed.  This happened before with my normal diet of 200-300 carbs, low- carb diets and even while doing strict healthy ketogenic diets of less than 20 carbs. If I eat a small amount of anything after 7:00, meat or fat or 2 g of nuts..... my sugars will start to climb about an hour after and keep climbing until I wake up.  Insulin doesn’t affect it if I take it before bed.  According to my meter, my glucose readings never drop but steadily rise constantly.

Thanks for replying, but its not from the liver.  I’ve already examined that variable and its not the issue.
