I'm in the market for some good bedtime snack ideas; reasonably healthy, and combine the carbs and protein needed to get Elise's BG up and keep it steady through the night.
The carb amount she gets depends on what her bedtime BG is, but she rarely gets anything above 8g of carbs. If her BG is too high, we give her deli chicken and some cheese. Her usual bedtime snack is goldfish crackers and banana, with some cheese for protein, but I want to change things up a little. I just need some good ideas.
She's on 2 units of NPH before bedtime, which brings me to another question... since we can piggy-back our Humalog in the same syringe as the NPH, is it reasonable to assume we could give her some H in her bedtime shot, so she can have a higher carb snack? Or is it a bad idea to give fast-acting at bedtime?
Thanks for any ideas you can give me!
