I've been having an issue with my sugars dropping before bedtime and when I wake up. At 6am this morning I woke up randomly to 56 glucose, and the night before it barely reached 117 when I was trying to sleep. I woke up again around 9am to 83.
It's been a ritual for a while now that I have to eat more before going to bed -- my go-to's are usually 10g carb popsicles or 22g carb Nature Valley bars. But sometimes I have to eat more than one of these things just to keep my glucose up before even sleeping (usually keeping me up until 1-2am).
I'm having an issue again tonight where my sugars have dropped after two 8g carb capri suns (55 to 125, then 90, then 79). It's going up a little bit after a 27g carb croissant sandwich and 4g glucose tab, but I'm still feeling shaky (84 when I checked 5 minutes ago).
I keep a fairly low-carb diet; I've cut out a lot of breads, and I mainly eat cheese, nuts, salads, and eggs/meat. I don't eat meals as much as I just snack every few hours. It's very limiting because I'm running on 8u of Lantus per day, injected every morning. Now I'm thinking even 8u is too much..? It's really annoying having to waste my strips every 15 minutes to check that I'll be okay (those things are stupid expensive).
I'm not in a state of emergency to go to Urgent Care, but I'd like to know anyone's experience with this? I also started an anti-depressant recently, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
Any input would be wonderful! <3
