I have had D for 4 years and it is only in the last 6 months or so that I am seeing consistently lower bgs. One of the things I have done differently is adding Coconut Oil to my diet. Yesterday I made some Coconut Oil Almond Cookies (MCS's recipe). I had beef stew with potatoes and spinach and several of these cookies for dinner. Before bed I was 75. I have never been that low before bed. Usually I am around 95-115. It scared me a little so I grabbed half of an EXTEND bar and had it. I was 86 this morning. Normally I don't eat a snack before bed because we tend to eat late. What should my bgs be before bed? By the way I don't normally get lows. I am only on metformin.

I like to be above 120 when I go to bed. much lower than that could mean trouble for me.

I get slightly paranoid at bed time. If I'm 90 or less, I'll munch something before bed to make sure my Lantis doesn't drop me too low while I'm asleep.

I like to be at 80 before bed, I don't usually fall low at night. As a matter of fact, I have the DP often.

Lantis should not drop your glucose levels but rather maitain them at a constant level. If it is dropping your levels you are probably taking to much.
