I don't know if I'm worrying for nothing but I can't get my fastings down to <110. With the increase in met, decrease in carbs, increase in exercise, fatty protein snack at bedtime I have managed to go from 120-140 down to 110-120. I rarely drop below 110 and the very lowest has been 99. I also spent some time testing in the middle of the night. I seem to reach a low in the higher 90s around 5 am then it starts to go back up. My after meal BG looks decent. With the low carb diet I am remaining under 140 at 2 hrs except for the rare occasion when I experiment and have it go bad. I am now trying to see if I can add back some fruit and whole grains. I seem to be doing ok with even 2 pieces of lower carb fruit so far. I really want my morning fasting to get below 110 so I meet ACE guidelines. I also want to be able to increase my carbs. I still am very tired even after several weeks of eating like this and think that I just need a little more carbs to properly function. I also still have a very short attention span which is not good since I'm taking a lot of classes next quarter and need to get a 4.0 to qualify for one heck of a scholarship to a private college that I want to transfer to.
So what else can I do to get that overnight BG down? I have an appointment with my dr. in a couple of months. He doesn't want to put me on any other drugs besides met but I think that I need something else. What would that something else be? My fastings have always been my problem which I gather isn't as common in women as having after meal ones be high. I was reading an article that said that for most women, fasting is the worst indication of a problem. I want to start my research so that when I go in I can show him why I want what but I'm really not certain what is the least problematic drug to add. I figured I ask everyone here since I always get such good advice from you.
