just to be safe however I would eat something just so that you aren't stuck later in a bad situation

You are always in danger of a low. I had one at 1:30 this morning. 50. But I am on the pump and it does a threshold suspend when it drops. I try to eat a graham cracker square or 2 before bed so it doesn't bottom out.

Metformin doesnt work like insulin. Its slow acting over about a 12 hr period. That being said I would never go to bed with a 84 bs. Eat something preferrably high in protein. I personally like a jimmy dean breakfast bowl, ham one, cause its 21 g protein & only 20 carbs. Also half a peanut butter sandwich holds me good too

I would eat something. Granted I'm on a pump and always have insulin being infused, so it's a bit different. Anyhow, if I were 84, I'd do a piece of peanut butter toast before bed. That's usually pretty good at holding me over until morning.

metformin works but just know it makes insulin like a supercharged drug 84 and 8 hrs of not management would put you down. good luck

Thanks for all of the feedback . I appreciated it. I ate a half cheese sandwich and a glass of milk for a snack. My blood sugar was 106 this am.
