Ok everybody. My doctor (due to my original blood glucose tests) determined after I was diagnosed that my sugars were high in the morning because my liver causes too much glucose to be produced while I am sleeping. My morning blood sugrs HAVE been coming down but have stablized around 107/108. The last 2 nights I have had a handful of Sunchips (15) about an hour before I went to bed and BOTH mornings my bg levels were 100!! I've heard that is you snack (healthy with a bit of protein and carb) it can help your blood sugar levels. Has anyone else seen this effect or experience this? What do you snack on at night (healthy) that helps???
(A little FYI: While you sleep and the blood glucose level drops. This signals the liver that more glucose is needed in the blood. The liver converts glycogen into glucose and glucose is dumped into the blood bringing the blood sugar back to a normal level. Sometimes the liver gets excited and produces too much.)
