I am having a problem with overnight hypos, at all times of the night-sometimes between the typical midnight to 3am slot, but also later on towards dawn.
I do my exercise in the evening, most of the time a run, a long walk, dynamic (not relaxing) yoga or training session with my running group, lasting an hour and a half of strength and sprint/series/changes of rhythm runs. I finish between 7pm and 830pm.
I get home, shower and have dinner, which is always 100gr of full-fat, Greek yoghurt with walnuts. (I live in Spain, we eat a bigger lunch and smaller dinner, also aiming, with help of a shrink, to never skip any meals and we decided this dinner I can do-bit of disordered eating going on, but working on fixing it.)
I have lowered my basal from .85-.80 from midnight to 0230am on the advice of my endo and if my bg is on the low side, under 100, i will lower my basal to 80% for the whole night, but if it is 150 going to bed, like last night, I don´t want to put a lowered basal. (Sometimes I finish very intense workouts high.)
I am looking to see if anyone else exercises at this time and has these problems with hypos and if you have a specific food that you eat that helps combat them. the yogurt has the three macronutrients and the walnuts are fat and some protein, so I am expecting them to keep me high enough to go through the night if I can´t lower the basal when I am higher at bedtime. Or just further experiment with lowering basal.
Thanks in advance!
