When is the best time in the evening to have your dinner, so that 2 hours later you can test your blood sugar? Is it best to eat dinner the same time daily? Help me out friends!! Remember this is all new to me too.

Best time is up to you. You should try to keep on a daily schedule and eat around the same time. Sometimes weekends play havoc with your plans, but it is easy to get back on track. Eating close to your bed time is not a good idea. If you are on a diet, then eating regularly is a must, and a need, cause you will be hungry and not want to put it off til later.

Yes Im going to pay more attention to my eating schedule so I can test closer to bed time. I notice if I test 2 hours after I eat, if I eat dinner round 6pm Im hungry in a few more hours, & before bedtime which is usually about 11pm. I think I have to figure out what snacks work best for me and is not to much to eat before bedtime. Thank you!!

Try to find a time that is good for you and fits into your schedule. We usually eat around 5:30 - 6 PM on a daily basis and that means I can test easily later in the evening. I usually try to test before bed more so than 2 hours after dinner.

Thanks so much I will do my best to eat at a regular time daily, and test closer to bedtime too.
