Default Fasting Blood Sugar issue

4th pregnancy, 2nd one with GD. My fasting one was my issue. I've found an egg or chicken salad sandwich on 1 slice whole grain bread helped. But I'm also on bedtime insulin. Anyone have any other tricks to lower fasting sugars? Weekends are the worse cause I sleep in late. Can go as high as 110. Rare but it's happened. I'm still in 92% range. They want you within 75.

That's my worst too. I could never keep it low on my own so I finally had to take a super small dose of medicine at night

110 is great!!! I'd tell that nurse to go to hell. No one can be a 75 fasting. That's a beyond ridiculous goal for an adult. It's just Big Pharma making more money and your doctor getting a free Hawaiian vacation for pushing drugs. Wake up honey!!!

I had the same problem. Make sure for your bedtime snack you're eating a serving of protein and 15 grams of carbs. Your fasting glucose is high because of the rebound effect when it gets too low overnight while you're sleeping.

Cheese and crackers with my bedtime insulin is my cure.
