Although my doctor hasn't said anything about it, I've read that eating meals on a regular schedule is important, but I find that pretty difficult, and I'm not really sure why it's important.
Recently I had to reduce my basal insulin because of overnight lows. Now I wake up with an acceptable BG, but by the time I'm ready for breakfast an hour later, it can shoot up 50-60 points. I'm assuming this is because my morning basal requirements are higher than nighttime. Can I solve this problem by getting up earlier, or am I likely to have the same problem earlier in the morning? The clock change didn't seem to help, but perhaps another hour earlier might?
Any insight you can offer will help!
