Should you be eating a bedtime snack?

This Week's Tip
Should you be eating a bedtime snack?

The number of snacks a person with diabetes should eat during the day depends largely on their eating preferences, weight-management goals, and timing of major meals. People with diabetes can eat snacks throughout the day for a number of reasons—like simply enjoying a mid-morning snack or planning them into their day for better blood glucose control. Exactly how many snacks you should eat—and when you eat them—is very individualized. A pre-bedtime snack is a common occurrence, but whether or not you should eat a snack at this time of night depends on one thing: Is your blood sugar low before bedtime? Is your blood sugar low before bedtime?

For those looking to optimize blood sugar control, eating a snack 1 to 2 hours before bedtime can sometimes improve blood sugar control and prevent nighttime hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), though not everyone will experience this benefit, according to recent research. A 2003 study published in the journal Diabetes Care suggests that people with diabetes that have blood glucose levels over 180 mg/dL before bed should not eat a bedtime snack; but those with blood glucose levels below 126 mg/dL at bedtime should have a snack (roughly 15 grams of carbohydrates and 100 calories) to prevent late-night lows.
