On diet and When I eat balanced nutritious meals at 2000 calories, im STARVING. So hungry I cant sleep and wake up several times bc of hunger. Why?
On diet and eat less calories, end up not able to sleep bc of low blood sugar. Eat balanced nutritious meals. What am I doing wrong? How can I avoid?
Nocturnal hypoglycem: Is the biggest problem that you are unable to sleep? And you think that is because your blood sugar is low? Have you checked your blood sugar at night (when you think it's low)? What are the readings? If that is truly the problem, often we asks diabetics to eat a midnight snack (just before going to bed). Ice cream works well. It supports the blood sugar long enough to sleep soundly. Don't overdo. ...Read more
