My FBG has been 105 to 110 lately.  My PP levels are all good.  I am going to try eating a light snack ( one cracker and a small piece of cheddar cheese ) before I go to bed tonight to see if it will lower my FBG.  Do I count my fasting eight hours from the time I ate my dinner or from the time I ate the cheese and cracker?  I usually eat dinner at seven.  I'll eat the snack at around 10:30 to 11:00 PM.  I am pre diabetic and take no meds.  Thank you!  Joni

Fasting time starts when you have had your last bite of food or drank anything other than water or black, non flavored coffee.

Right, so you'd be "fasting" from the time you ate the snack.  Try the cracker with the cheese and see what your fasting is the next morning.  Then, try just eating cheese and some nuts and see if there's a difference.  Remember:  anything with flour has carbs and the carbs will raise the blood sugar.  Good luck.

Unless you go low during the night or in the morning..... skip the cracker and eat the cheese. If you're pre-diabetic and not on meds, you don't want the added glucose in the cracker. Have an extra piece of cheese instead :-)
