I am very thin and because of diabetes it ate me away. I started insulin and was able to put a few pounds on. The A1C is 7.7 and I keep trying to bring it down. One of my bad snacks at night was rice krispies bars. I stopped eating that at night and trying to stay in 80 110 range but doing no good. My fear is dropping to low. I am really flustrated. Most all diabetics seem to loose weight and that helps there problem.

I'm not sure what you mean by " . . . because of diabetes it ate me away."

And you say also, " Most all diabetics seem to loose weight and that helps there problem."

I know that a lot of us (But not all) t2s struggle with losing pounds, and if by that last sentence you mean, something like: if we lose the weight, the severity of our Diabetes ("DM") diminishes, I would agree, because many times losing weight usually helps in controlling DM, but not always.

You say you stopped eating rice krispy treats (bars). That's really good, because the combination of the crisped rice and the marshmallows is really carb heavy!

I am wondering what you eat as a bedtime snack in its place?

Weight loss can help, but it is not the case in everyone. There is more going on with you it seems, and a fear of going low tells me you may want to talk to your doctor about your meds or when you take them. When you say low, what do you mean?
