Valerie, yes hummus (chickpeas) does have protein like lots of other legumes. However peanuts beats chicpeas hands down in the protein departmenf see ~ http://www.twofoods.com/compare/query/cGVhbnV...
When I have had trouble with my fasting AM numbers I ate peanut butter on apple slices. No more mid-night liver dumps.

Lantus is a 24 hr insulin. If you have problems with liver dumps, perhaps you could try (with your Dr's consent) moving your injection to the morning.

My magic bullet right now is half a banana dipped in dark chocolate rolled in chopped peanuts and frozen. I eat one before I go to bed now and I have not had any rises since I have been doing this. Plus, I get to eat a banana which is one of the foods I had given up on.

I buy Bakers bitter sweet cooking chocolate. I add about 1 teaspoon coconut oil to it when I melt it down. One bar makes about 4 whole bananas, cut in half with a little left over.

I have suggested that you eat low carb and high protein numerous times.

Eat some protein before you go to bed and that should reduce the morning readings. When I see you posting in other discussions, what you are eating I would not call those things "low carb" at all.

What type of insulin are you trying to use at night. And that 64 "grams" of insulin, Is that 64 grams or 64 units? I suspect that as the measurement markings of the syringe is generally in units, you really mean Units.

God's best to you
