I am at a loss here. I guess I have just gotten off track with tending for others in the family with illnesses but I do not know what to do to get lower blood sugar readings. Does anyone else have this problem and how do you handle it. Open for advise

This is called predawn syndrom, and I also get it. A diabetic nurse had told me that a 1/2 an hour before going to bed, eat something with protien. Cheese, milk, peanut butter. It is suppose to help your levels stay level loonger. Just watch your portion control. Eat like two peices of cheese and a small glass of milk, or two crackers and peanut butter, a handful of nuts.

thanks so much…it has been so long since I went to the nutrional training I forget sometimes. It is very upsetting to see my sugars sometimes in the high 200's when I get up…I always figured I was tryen to get sick or someting…and never really sure what to eat before bed. I have a very hectic life style with a home daycare/bi polar husband on disability because of it and I clean our church and school every nite so my day goes from 7am till around 12-1 in the morning.

My diabetes educator told us that the blood sugar would go up when we go to bed. For what it's worth.
