Q:

I am type 2 and have found that I get readings that are about 134 in the mornings. I am usually awake at 3-3:30 so testing can be done. Should I eat/drink something (if so, what?) before bed or at 3:00 when I test in order to maintain levels through the night?

A:

From your question, it sounds as if you are concerned that your fasting blood glucose level is too low. If it is around 130 mg/dL, it is not too low. For people with diabetes, a fasting blood glucose level between 70 and 130 mg/dL is not too high and not too low.
