Good Luck!!! Sounds like you need some..lol…and I'm so glad you are now able to check your blood sugar the right way…that should really help with the lowering of them..and help you get some better sleep.

Since I have been lowering my numbers, I can actually sleep thru the night. Except for the dogs. LOL

I used to think I would never get enough to drink, now I have to make sure I drink enough.

But like John said, it is often a sign of high sugar. You will find that it will lessen when your levels lower. If you don't, I would talk to your doctor and see what else might be going on.

2 Am Unhook CPAP stumble into bathroom trying not to wake birds while passing through computer room. Doesn't work…Tell Raff Goodnight
Into bathroom then stumble back trying not to wake birds while passing through computer room. Doesn't work…Tell Raff Goodnight hook CPAP back up as Raff yells Smooches. This happens a couple more times before I get up at 5 to get Hubby off to work. After he leaves sometimes I can lay back down til around 8 or 9 when Raff starts yelling Good Morning.
Man gotta get those numbers down. LOL

I won't be complaining about my dogs that bug me at 3:30 after seeing all that hassle...yep. Get those numbers down and you might just have a whole night. You wouldn't know what to do with that. LOL

This is caused primarily by high blood sugars. Watch what you eat right before bed and be sure to test your blood sugar too.

If your blood sugar is in a normal range, you will definitely be up less in the night for trips to the bathroom and for water.
