Most mornings I wake up around 1am and test at around 110 to 120, and begin my routine of drinking coffee. My pill box alarm goes off around 4am and I take my meds including my glipizide. I eat breakfast of 1 cup of vanilla low fat yogurt and 1/2 cup blueberries (about 20g carbs approx ) . I test just before breakfast and I'm usually still between 100-110 so I really haven't dropped much. About 2 hours after breakfast, sometimes 3 hours, I begin getting symptoms of a low and will test again. At this point I am often as low as 45 or 46. Sometimes not quite so low, but I am definitely low.
I've taken Glipizide in the morning as well as 25 units of Levimere. I called my Endo yesterday when this happened for the third morning in a row and we lowered my insulin to 15 units. in the morning.
Any suggestions on maybe a breakfast change? It has to be simple, quick and easy.
thanks, HUGS, Heidi
