Hi, 40 yr old t2 diabetic (dx Feb 2019). At what point do you have a snack before bed glucose wise? And what fo you have? Been having fasting readings of over 150, and noticed that if I had 1/2 a peanut butter sandwich and some grapes with water, my am readings were closer to 100. Nutritionist said it may be dawn phenomena (sp?) Have a 15g carb snack before bed and it should be lower in am.
When I asked my PCP, she said under 120, have something like peanut butter and apple slices or crackers and cheese, but that is close to where my average glucose is already, and seems like a bit high to be having a snack.
When I talked to my diabetic nurse educator, she said snack if under 100, but didnt offer any snack ideas.
Last A1c was 6.2 (1/20) and waiting on most recent results, but average glucose for past 12 weeks is about 145, mostly because of those 150+ fasting reads. (My other reads are always 90- 128… although it does tend to be closer to 3 hrs after eating that I check)
