Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar high bedtime

blood-sugar

I wasn't supposed to be diabetic until now, but at 50 I started to check for blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> (I am 51)with my blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> monitor. Amazingly, the fast blood level right after wake these last days was 7 (mmol). If I stay to bed til 11 am, it was 7.5 mmol. After shower, it drops to 6.5 / 6.8, 2 hours after breakfast (chicken salad and big plate of oatmeal with non-fat milk and without sugar or sweeteners) it drops to 6.1, during the day, it's 6.1, at at bed time, goes to 5.5 ! isn't it weird ?
I am a type II diabetic and I would like to know what is considered a "good" blood sugar reading for me when I test at different times of the day....before meals, after meals, fasting in the morning, at bedtime and other random times during the day.
These are all important in managing this illness, the most important, along with proper nutrition, is physical activity. The most common causes for high blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> are bad food choices, sugary liquids, and lack of physical exercise. During that same period, the circulatory system and nervous system is put under stress. Caffeine stimulates the production of stress hormones, which increases glucose production by the liver.
Could he be running high at night for his average to be up? I also know that at times he does check his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> before bedtime and it's in the 60's. is there anything he can do to avoid going on oral agents and insulin? Also, what do you think about cinnamon and other herbs?
Any sustained blood sugars over 140 are when complications begin. So if the blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> spikes up that high and comes right back down it isn't as bad as if it stays there for awhile, but it would be better not to get that high altogether. But it really doesn't make sense that your blood sugar would be that high right after eating. It usually takes awhile to reach its highest point which is why we are told to test at 2 hours (though some people hit their peak a bit sooner).
If you go to bed high and you do not have enough medication in your system(either insulin or pills) to handle it, then you will wake up high as well. Check your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bedtime</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> and see what it is. If it is too high then you need to treat that before going to bed, taking care not to bring it down too low before hitting the sheets. Drink water. You can have food at night(I disagree with the other member) as long as your sugars are in the right range prior to going to bed.
My doctor discourages blood glucose testings -- says that's only necessary if I were on insulin. However, I will occasionally check my blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> -- maybe once or twice a month or if I'm not feeling well. I checked it on Sunday and found it was running somewhat high. Just for the heck of it, I checked it when I went to bed and it was 336 around 10 p.m. I happened to wake up at 3 a.m. to use the restroom and thought I would check it again since it was kind of high when I went to bed.
I think it is impossible for 2 cups of white coffee without <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> can raise the blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> so much! Just too scare to do another blood glucose test. Any one has those experience or come across those symptoms? Could some one give me an idea what should I do next?
What would cause my husband's blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels to always be high? We discovered he was diabetic 2 1/2 years ago when he had a very, very severe pancreatic attack. Taken by ambulance to the hospital and stayed in ER for about 8 hours. When we returned home, it was only 20 minutes before we were in the car rushing to the hospital again. This time they kept him for 2 weeks. Ok, thats the history. Now I would like to know about these high numbers.
( I am hyperactive I am not used to sitting still or waiting for my blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> to go up or down to get things done.
I can't tell if you're female or male, but if you're female, you may be going thru some hormonal changes that affect your ability to control your blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. Depending on your activity levels, your metabolism may be slower now, too, than when you first started the routine that 'used to work' for you.
The first issue is whether or not it is compensatory (in the case of asthma and COPD, for example), in which case it should be fooled with cautiously. The other possibility is idiopathic high-blood prerssure, with no known causitive factor. Your blood pressure readings are a bit high but not dangerously high. You did not record the pulse. Without knowning the pulse the blood pressure reading is meaningless.
) I ran so high for so long that I actually felt sick and went through withdrawals when I tried to get them back under control. NOw I'm doing better, but this last wek I started running too high again and the doctor doesn't know what else to do for me. We increased my pill and are still waiting on the new insulin, but if those don't work then I have to go to an endocrinologist for special assistance.
Check your glucose level in the middle of the night (around 3 AM). If your blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> is high, you are probably experiencing Dawn Phenomenon. One thing to try is not to snack 2-3 hours before bedtime. Carbs will raise glucose levels during the night.
my blood pressure 160/110 mg/dl I went to my Doctor and gave me glucophage and I returned to my previous diet and I have a 0 urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> level blood pressure 140 /93 mmHg . but my Fbg becomes highest in the morning and lowest at bed time 260 FBG morning and 180 mg/dl at bed time. ( I am on 0 carb diet and I lost so far 10 kgs of my weight.
Dear Friends, I love building muscles so I have to consume lots of milk, proteins and carbohydrates for energy......? Today I got my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels tested but Fasting blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> is showing 105 where the range is 60 minimum to 110 max. PPBS and Glucose blood sugar GH1BC all are normal. Now i am worried as I am close to 110 in Fasting blood sugar ? how to reduce it further.......I do cardio for 30 minutes everyday with 10kms speed..5 kms per day...
He did not tell me to monitor my blood sugar, but local supermarket was giving out free meters so I got one (tru2go) and some test strips and have been checking here and there, especially when I feel like I'm having a low blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> attack. I have never yet had a high reading when I checked at any time. However, I have been having a lot of low blood sugar attacks and readings.
So I should think the quick drop is normal. The question is how high is your fasting blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> and do you ever show symptoms of low-blood sugar. By the way, some people can control type II diabetes with diet alone. If while on your diet your blood sugar starts dropping too fast, see your doctor. He/She may want to reduce your medication.
I'm not sure why her doctors are letting her go on with blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> that high and out of control. Perhaps because they feel the tumor is the problem and they are treating that? Perhaps she should see an endocrinologist. Yes, insulin would help her blood sugar and sounds like an option since the oral meds are not touching it. As for the different results on the meter, meters do have a 20% variation. I would suggest forgetting the three tests and just take it as its reading indicates.
The Symogi effect is the tendency of the blood sugar to rise as a result of low blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. Low blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> can trigger release of hormones such as glucagon that raise blood sugar. The liver would normally respond to declining blood sugar by increasing glycogenolysis, as I discussed above. But insulin inhibits glycogenolysis, and as you may have observed, low blood sugar occurs most often near an insulin peak.
You can take Cinnamon. It's all natural and it has been proven to lower blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>. Also, you might want to try Gymenama I think it's called ? People with PCOS take it with diabetes and it helps.
I got down to 142-144 and thought I was doing pretty well, but my cholesterol and triglycerides were still high. Moderately high blood pressure, etc. So, last December my nurse practitioner asked if I would be interested in trying a diet to curb inflammatory disease. ( I have MS, asthma, arthritis. Diabetes would be considered an inflammatory disease as well.) I thought I could give it a whirl! Well, I've been on it now 10 months and am down to 120 and a size 2! I feel great!
my husband right after liver transplant two years ago, dr gave him insulin maintenance due to high blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>, actrapid penfill 0.10ml 3x before meal and 0.10 ml lantus once before bedtime. but now as we observe his blood sugar drop down 90-140 even we reduced insulin into 0.5ml. my question is with this situation do you think we can totally stop insulin?
Dinner yesterday- 76 before, 88 after. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bedtime</span> I ate a whole ton of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> again and it flew up to 143 and then, to 134. This morning I woke up and tested and I was at a 61 for a level. I felt the symptoms again of low blood sugar and ate oatmeal (maple brown sugar) and drank juice and shot up to 129. Then, 100 to 97 and down to 83. My Grandpa had diabetes and im worried I may. Help..
There are different schools of thought. My two-cents worth is that initially, you should be testing very intensively. Later on, when you get a handle on your insulin utilization situation, you can test less often. The problem is that none of are very good at "guessing" our blood sugar levels.. (1) Fasting (or one definition anyway) is the level when you get up in the morning without eating all night. (2) Generally, two hours after every meal. (3) Before going to bed.
Endocrine problems, such as an underactive thyroid (called hypothyroidism), overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency (called Addison's disease), low blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels, and in some cases, diabetes, may lead to hypotension and hence lightheadedness and an off balance feeling. Certain types of epilepsies and seizures too can cause similar symptoms. If you have an accompanying headache then you must also look at benign intracranial hypertension.
My high BP started about 4 months before I started tx which would be about a year and a half ago. It was 150/90 all of a sudden. First I was given Diovan 160 which brought it down to abot 135/85 temporarily then I was upped to Diovan 320 which brought it down to about 135/85. at the end of tx 1 year ago my BP was back up to 160/90 with a rapid heart rate. I was given enalapril 5 mg and Metaprolol 50 mg whiuch brought it down to 130/80.
If she takes it at bedtime, then that may be too high a dose that is making her blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> so low in the early morning. Many people are able to treat their hypoglycemia down into the 30s, but much lower than that and they could lose consciousness. It is not safe to try and get someone to swallow something if they are unconscious, but they will need a glucogon injection or to call 911. Much better than risk dangerous hypos is to find out what is causing them to begin with.
