I'm getting frustrated and would be open to suggestions from fellow byetta users.
My numbers at bedtime are good, 100-115 (great for me) I have my1 carb snack, even tried Extend Bars, that are supposed to help keep you level for 9 hours and in the morning my number is very high, 225 or higher! I go to bed/snack around 10:00pm and get up 5:00am.
Any suggestions?
I'm about ready to let nature take it course and dump all of this!
I'm having little side effects and have lost almost 30 lbs but it's just so frustrating!
Thanks for any help you can offer,
JoAnne sad

Hi there,
Are you on metformin at night?I ask this because Metformin prevents excess glucose release from the liver overnight,thus preventing high fasting values.

Your Extend bars work for 9 hours,but you sleep only 7 hours.You can try doing away with the bed-time carbo-snack and check your fasting value.That may do the trick!

You can get up at 3 A.M and check your blood glucose.If it's too low,you are suffering Rebound Hyperglycemia in the morning.If it is high,you can blame it on the bed-time carbo-snack.You can substitute instead with a high-protein snack.Hope this is of help.

Yes I take Glucophage XR, 4 500mg tablets 2 x day.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try a protein instead of a carb asnack and see how it goes.
