Is Whey a high carb food?

if you are referring to Whey protein powder... it depends on brand and what they put in it. there is low carb whey protein powders that are great

And peanuts are?? I have Spanish peanuts to roast and grind.

this site says there is 12.6g (net carb) per 1 cup. Not horrible but way over the amount I am comfortable with.

Default Exercise?

Timing of exercise may help? Possibly a walk or light exercise added in in the evening hours, just make sure it doesn't make you go too low in the middle of the night.

Also, I know so many people focus on the fasting, but if 125-150 is your fasting and that is the highest point of the day, you are doing really well at controlling your blood sugar. Every body's liver makes sugar, it makes more sugar at times of stress and starvation, thats why some people with diabetes have a higher fasting BG than later in the day.

Its always a work in progress, but I would recommend maintaining a consistent meal plan with a minimum of 3 meals spread throughout the day.

That's the website I was trying to find to show the poster who likes to eat pistachios. Thanks for posting it again.

For a supper, besides limiting carbs of course, I've noticed on numerous occasions that limiting my protein intake in the evening hours helps to keep fasting glucose down.

I have the same issue with high fasting glucose. I wake up most days at 200-300. Occasionally, I'll wake up at 90. This occurs after fasting 8 hours, 12 hours or 14 hours. Also occurs whether or not I snack before bed or go to bed hungry, whether I eat carbs or protein before bed & whether I increase Lantus to 20 Units or not. A few times, I took a risk & tried testing before bed & if I was high, taking 5-6 Units Humalog. Both times, I woke up (luckily) at around 3:00am too low & tested at 60.

tbh what's worked better for me than anything in a reproducible manner (I've tried so much of what you've tried) is taking advantage of one of my nighttime "pit stops" and eating just a few carbs. The amount depends on when I wake up and my BG reading right before bed -- 4-6 carbs if I wake up 4 hours or so before my regular wakeup time down to 1-1.5 if I wake up around 1-1/2 to 2 hours before my regular wakeup time.

Lately my carb of choice has been Ritz Bitz cheese crackers because they're about 1.5 grams of carbs apiece, don't need special care on my nightstand, and can be eaten quietly and neatly when I'm half awake. For a while I would snack on cheese or such, but something with a few carbs in it worked better.

Can't explain it well but it's worked well enough long enough for me to trust it.

I’ve too have been really struggling with DP lately. I’m blaming a period of stress that I can’t avoid right now. I’m doing the best I can with it. Itissteve- your ritz bits is a very interesting solution. I’m trying it! Thank you.
