A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been looking for a good rheumatologist and unfortunately the ones In have contacted are not taking new patients. It's scary that this seems to be a scarce resource.

Is Eating A Snack In The Middle Of The Night A Good (or Bad) Way To Lower Fbg? And Does Everybody's Body Work That Way?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

If I eat a small snack when I get up to pee in the middle of the night-my fbg is usually substantially lower in the morning. At the same time, I need to lose more weight. If I save 100 calories or so at the end of the day, for a small "middle of the night snack" I could still maintain my daily 1500 calorie allowance. (By eating only 1400 calories) Just not sure if it would be a healthy habit to continue.

Does anyone else work graveyard shift and have any tips or tools to utilize

How Do You Explain To A New Diabetic About Hypos, He Is Asking Why The Need For Starch And Protein ?

OK here goes. Aaron woke up early to a fbs Libre 6.3 (113) finger stick 6.1 (110), Angele gave him breakfast. I woke up and chating with them asking what time he ate, turns out it was 4 hrs, so I tried telling him he has to eat at least every 4 hrs or his sugar levels might drop, so seeing we have a Libre on him we checked and it was 5.0 (90), he tried getting up from bed but got dizzy.
