How sensitive are you to wine and the effect of wine/alcohol on next morning fasting BG? If a little wine before bed can decrease the sugar dump from the liver, it could be nice.
For the past 3 days, my morning Fasting have been 83,73, 67. (bedtime BG: 105,110,112). (I’m not worried about hypoglycemia overnight because there is no bolus short acting insulin on board. My dinner bolus is usually between 6 or 7 pm. There is only Tresiba overnight. Based on previous basal testing, my BG stays fairly level overnight and throughout the day if I don’t eat. ) Although the decrease from bedtime to fasting is large, especially from 112 to 67. My endo thinks that 7 units of Tresiba is the right dose for me. I’ve been using Tresiba for over 1 month now. It’s been decent.
For the past 4 days, I changed the time of dosing Tresiba from 9 pm to 6 pm. Could this be the cause for the lower fasting BG. Has anyone found that the time of day injection of Tresiba has made a difference for them?
Another possibility is that I’ve been having dark unsweetened cocoa with heavy whipping cream w/ a bit of Trader Joe vanilla extract in some hotwater after dinner. The vanilla extract does contain alcohol. Could this be the cause?
BTW - do you become concerned with a fasting BG of 67? I’m not. Although, it is lower than what I usually have (89 to somewhere in the low 100’s).
For tonight and the next few days, I’ll skip the vanilla extract with alcohol and see if it makes any difference.
I plan to continue with this current routine of taking Tresiba at 6pm for another week or so and observe.
