In my experience dropping grains did wonders for my BG. Talk to your health care professional and get a recommendation on how many carbs you should eat per meal. My dietician has me on 10g or less per meal for 30 total for the day. This is because I do not want to become insulin dependent and super low carb is working for me. Good luck!

Lantus is a long-acting insulin that is designed to lower blood sugar levels over a 24-hour period. There is information about Lantus and other types of insulin here: http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/.... It's also a good idea to talk with your physician and/or diabetes educator about Lantus and any changes you could make to help manage diabetes. ~Lynn @Glucerna

My diabetes educator told me if I saw higher numbers in the morning then at night before bedtime I should have a Dannon Light & Fit Greek Yogurt and at 80 Cals she said I could even have two if I wanted. I think they have 19 grams of protein and she said they would help keep my sugar level as I slept.

Like what James said in his post below we are all different and you have to think about what different things factor in for you.

Good luck and I hope you are able to figure it all out and soon.

Howdy Hateful
To get a handle on what is happening with your body leading to those extremely high numbers, a little more info would be useful.

For instance, how long have you had your T2? What are you using to try to manage your BG (blood gluose) numbers? What kind of meal plan are you eating?

To know things like that would be useful as we could make more informed suggestions to you instead of making a series of WAGs (Wild A$$ Guesses)

God's best to you

had T2 over 6 years now take metformin and victoza injection always had higher numbers in morning than later in day…I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables sometimes don't stick to diet as I should though

Have you met recently with a diabetes educator and registered dietitian? They'll review your current eating habits and make suggestions for where you can make changes to improve overall blood sugar control as well as FBS. ~Lynn @Glucerna
