Hello, any suggestions on late night snack, before bedtime? I was told this may be the cause of my high readings in the morning… not eating enough at night …

You perhaps could go to the online section of the news and determine if that link might be found there? If so, share it with us!

U may want to avoid eating food before bed, research has shown you should be digested before you go to bed to prevent further health issues? And if u drink spirits/.. before bed you may gain weight, they are known for there calories according to the news,. :-/

Qween, please produce this research which shows food should be digested prior to bedtime?
And exactly what would those "further health issues" be?

A link to this research would be helpful.

I was not eating snacks at night unless my BG was very low. The doc increased my levamir and it did the trick.

I think there is so much individuality in how one responds to late night snacks. You might check with a diabetic nutrition counselor. It is true that most replies are low carb high protein and should not affect you. If these are the types of snacks you have, then you should check with a pro to find out why. For me, a late night snack, even the correct types, affect my numbers if I have them too late at night (11 pm -1 am)

I don't quite understand some of the replies.
Based on my experience what you need is a total of 15-20 grams of carbs, plus a protein would help.
Many of the suggestions below are low carb and high protein, which wouldn't do it for you.

I like my veggies personally, but I'm also partial to walnuts, pecans, and almonds. You could even talk to your doctor about having a small snack with a bit of carb (toast and peanut butter anyone?). I'll also occasionally get adventurous and fry some mushrooms and onions in a bit of margarine. Stringless snap peas are good too… Ok where's the walnuts?… I assume you're a t1 too?

You are having what is called a liver dump. Try eating a protein before bed. The liver is the bodies Emergency Medical Technician. It doesn't think you are taking care of your body so when it senses your blood sugar is low, it dumps carbs into your system which in turn can cause high blood sugar in the morning.
