Hi! it seems like my blood sugar level increases in the morning when I wake up. i.e. last night after supper I went out for a long walk. I took a reading after that (2 hrs after dinner) and result was close to normal. then I just had broccoli and hummus dip for snack before I went to bed. when I woke up this morning and took a reading my sugar level was at 7.7 and I was really pissed. why does it go up when I didnt eat anything after dinner. what can you do to keep it at a normal level over… read more
I was confused over that too.. my Dr explained to me that with type 2, as our sugar drops naturally overnight, your body gets scared when it gets to a certain level and overreacts by stealing from vital organs to get it back up (too high normally). Diabetes LOVES a high sugar level and will do anything to keep it. I wasn't eating a bedtime snack and didn't understand why I'd be higher in the morning. It was because I got too low for my body to be happy during the night. Sounds simplistic, but I need that. LOL YEARS ago someone told me to eat half a peanut butter sandwich for night snack...that works for me and holds me all night, but I'm supposed to be cutting down on bread so 'i' need other options!
Yes, I have found that if I do snack before bedtime, when I eat something high in fiber its better like an apple.
It was the hummus that raised your blood sugar. Better to have protein like cheese or a hard boiled egg before bed.
7.7 is 138...multiply by 18
