Default bedtime glucose

Hi everyone,
What is a "normal" bedtime blood glucose reading for a non-diabetic? Keeping an eye on my daughter until she has an appt. with a pediatric endo in a few weeks. I'm just not sure what her bedtime reading should be. Thanks.
Michele

I'm usually happy if mine is around 100, and I often have a small protein snack before bed - a piece of cheese or a bite of meat.

Is that what it should be for a non-diabetic?

Most charts are more concerned with fasting and postprandial readings. While trying to keep my searches focused on children, I found this at Blood Sugar Monitoring under the heading Diabetes In Children:
Numbers To Aim For

Here are the normal glucose levels for people without diabetes:
  • Before breakfast: 70-110
  • Before lunch, supper, and bedtime snack: 70-120
  • One hour after meals: 140 or less
  • Two hours after meals: 120 or less
It doesn't address bedtime numbers.

There is a chart with bedtime numbers at the bottom of this page, but it is referring to children already diagnosed and using insulin.

Thank you for your help!! I can't wait for her endo appt so I can figure everything out with her and stop feeling the need to search for info on my own.
