I am wondering if anyone else experiences what I do. I'm type 2 on Novolog, Levemir, and Metformin. When I eat carb friendly dinners I end up with BS readings 140-160 in the morning. Now when I eat a high carb meal that will spike me reading to over 200 I wake up with a reading that is almost below 100. It's as if my BS reacts the same way my body does to a carb attack. My energy spikes then plummets. Same for the BS. Any ideas why I wake up with a super low BS reading after noshing on carbs the night before? And the high carb load can come from a big bowl of whole wheat pasta, doughnuts, even candy. If the spikes were not so bad for me I'd consider doing this way more often to get that low reading in the morning. If anyone has any ideas on why this happens I would greatly appreciate it. If not, I go to my PCP next week and will ask then.
