My mealtimes vary significantly and I haven't noticed that it's difficult to manage blood sugar as a result. For me, stress is a bigger factor.

Most of my meals are irregularly scheduled, although our main meal of the day is usually between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. I eat several small meals/snacks through the day. I'm non-insulin-dependent, but this haphazard eating routine doesn't seem to have much affect on my bg . . . I'm just always high in the morning & drop throughout the day.

I would have to say that with the medication regiment that you are on the time really doesn't matter.

I don't necessarily eat my meals at the same time each day but I do space them out evenly throughout the day, every 4 to 6 hours. If I eat breakfast at 8 then I eat lunch between 12 and 2. If I was to eat lunch at 1:30 I would try to eat dinner between 5:30 and 7:30. I was told this lets my body use the insulin that I had injected and I know that if I wait much longer than this, I tend to go low very fast.

My doctor is adamant that I need to eat by 6pm every night, REGARDLESS.
