wtg, shanny and breeze! While I know 106 isn't bad, it is not as good as I had been doing. My readings at various times of the day have all been higher in the last few weeks, and I know without doubt that it is stress.

My FBS was 81 this morning, the same as last night's bedtime reading.

((((Wish)))) Is there any chance your work situation will smooth out any time soon, and the stress factor be reduced? It's a real bummer to be faced with every day . . . my last position before retirement did that to me, and I wasn't even diabetic in those days!

Weird night for me . . . I didn't test before bed - fell in early last night about 9pm. Was awake again about 1am, so got up - tested 99 about 2am. Got drowsy again about 4am, tested 109, so ate a coupla beef sticks to ward off the liver dump. Too late. Slept 'til 11:30 & tested 118. Ick!

I went to bed with a 19 last night (opps) but it went down to 6.7 when I woke up this morning. My glucose doesn't always remain consistent during the night!

I completely agree!! But sometimes it does, and I can never work out the pattern. It's always a gamble if I inject to reduce my glucose before bed if it's that high.

My FBS was 57 this morning. I ate 3 glucose tabs and that brought it up to 77. I went to bed with a 156 reading and gave myself a 3 unit dose of Novolog to bring it down. Fell asleep before I could test to see how much the 3 units lowered my reading. Oh well...
