One of the things my boyfriend is finding challenging lately is sleeping. He'll go to bed way too high (as an attempted preventative) and wake up low...sometimes he'll go to bed low (after a quick sweet snack to boost his BG) and wake up super-high.
I've been trying to figure out ways to prevent this, or help him manage that part of the day better, since it seems to be the hardest part for him, but without concrete suggestions/products it's tough.
So, I guess I'm asking what sort of snacks you guys have before bed to help keep you in the safe zone over night. What are you looking for in a snack if you're high? Low? is there certain grams of carbs/protein that I should be looking for?
*note* I'm still trying to get him to join...it's a work in progress. If I can get him on here I will, but in the interim I still need to find ways to help him deal with this. His current issues dealing with his BGs are having a pretty obvious effect on his motivation...as in he seems to have little to none currently (at least when it comes to learning/trying new things). I'm hoping If we can get him a bit more stable then his frustration level will go down and he'll be more receptive to trying new things.
