I do so well during the day with eating healthy. For years I have waken up at night starving! I notice my blood sugar is lower than usual but not too low and recently this has gotten worse I had surgery. So im battling with that. Anyone experience this? By eating something at night I think its affecting my weight and my blood sugar will be high when I wake up because I ate even something healthy.

    It never happened to me.... I control my diabetes with diet and exercise and have been successful in lowering my sugar levels. Low carb, Paleo diet, wheat free, sugar free.....I eat around 6 pm my last meal of the day and until the next day around 7 am I eat nothing, nor do I crave food. I do not drink alcohol, I am very active, do yoga and pilates and manage my stress levels.

    deedee, not me.  But you just started on a new drug, right?

    I forget, how many carbs per meal are you eating?  Maybe you could do a few more carbs per meal, or have a late snack, without hurting your numbers, and you'd do better at night?

    This sometimes happens to me.

    If you have your main meal in the evening try eating a bit more then or have it a bit later so you do not wake up hungry.

    I care for my diabetic, elderly mother. She often gets up in the night and raids the kitchen looking for sweets. It’s gotten so bad that I can’t  keep any candy or other sweets in the house and I have to hide the bananas because she’ll eat five if given the chance.

    I try to keep a snack on her bedside table- almond butter on glutten free toast, bacon , almond milk, nuts are some of her favorites. Not the best solution, but it works to have a little buffet on her bedside table.

    Any natural approach suggestions would be helpful.  I dont think its healthy for her to eat at night and dhe loses sleep.
