Do you mean for a bedtime snack, @A DiabetesTeam Member ? A lot of people seem to opt for a nut butter on a few crackers or tuna. Maybe check the local grocer and read the labels on the protein bars offered in your area. I can eat from several of mine.
Or do you mean your sugars are just high? There are said to be several things that can help lower blood sugar. Water. Blue berries. Cherries. Apple Cider Vinegar. Cinnamon. Chai seeds (I drink Chai tea over the course of the day and it helps my sugars stay down) and the spice turmeric (I have been experimenting with this spice a lot lately. Whether I use a pinch on whatever I am cooking, or just use a pinch mixed in with my salads I do find it lowers my sugars faster after a meal). But first, do some research and read about the stuff I have mentioned here to see if it is right for you. Especially spices may interact with your meds, though cooking with is said to be safe, I would urge you to discuss with your doctor first.

Not necessarily. I have exceptionally low blood sugars at night -50-88. I try to stop eating any kind of dinner by 7 pm but find that by 11 my bs is below 100. so I eat a high protein snack. Many times I wake up around 3 or 4 because my sugar is low. Your personal metabolism makes a big difference.

My blood glucose levels always higher in the morning, but I know it is because the liver flushes out at about 3-4am...its also between these times that I wake up with a serious skin leak problem and have to have a shower to cool down enough to get back to sleep for a couple of hours. Life with diabetes can be a pain!!

I learned from my sister, who was also diabetic, that eating a carb and protein at night kept my sugars from being high in the morning.

I use to my doctor had me eat a small snake at night because if you go to long without out eating your body goes in starving mode and produces more sugar. This has worked for me
