What Steps Can You Take To Keep Your Sugar Levels From Dropping To Far During Your Sleep?

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Liz goes to bed between 12 midnight and 1:30am and she has recently been waking up between 6am and 7am with low blood sugar. This morning it was 53.

She normally will eat a bowl of multi grain cereal with no sugar and then go back to bed until around 9 or 10am and then she gets up for the day.

Yesterday she ate two scrambled eggs with spinach and two slices of whole wheat toast.

Since Paxlovid interferes with many of my medications like lipitor, the doctor recommended Lagevrio as I would be able to stay on all medications. Also given something for the cough as Musinex was doing nothing.
