A Good Night

My night time blood sugars don’t always look like this, but when they do, it means I’ve slept well.

my Dexcom graph from last night. which i just might frame!

Last night, I was somehow able to go to sleep with my blood sugar right at around 100 and yet, it didn’t drop too low and demand a snack.  I would love to know the secret formula to recreate this every single night!

Just as a side note, you can see on my Dexcom graph how my bs popped up from around 70 mg/dL to 100 around 9am.  That was caused from just getting up and at ’em.  No food. Ok, actually 2 cashews, which is not that carb heavy.  I usually eat a couple of nuts because for some reason, I prefer to drink water after eating a couple of nuts. And I know it’s important to hydrate first thing in the morning after sleeping all night.  I have read that you snore and breathe out a lot of water while sleeping.  Sounds gross, but it’s just a human thing. Everyone does it.  I’m not drooling in some out-of-control way anymore than the next guy.

Although I do drink water first thing in the morning, I skip “breakfast”.  But I don’t think of it as skipping breakfast… I just delay when I break my fast until around lunchtime.  It’s also known as intermittent fasting. And it’s been working really well for me since I started doing it about 6 months ago. But I’ll save that blog post for next time!

Like I said, my over night blood sugar graph doesn’t always look like this.  But when it does, I have to show somebody. So thank you for indulging me!
