Not ideal: The regimen for patients with diabetes should control blood sugars adequately, so that first am (fasting) bgs are in the normal range, ideally 80-120. The timing of meds around this reading is less important than the reading itself which, if high, indicates a likely need for modification to diet, exercise, meds, or all three. ...Read more

Depends: A diabetic with intact hypoglycemic response should wake up when bgs drop <70. However, if ur sugars are too low for too long, ur body gets use to it and your alarm may be set lower, for example...If ur bgs are usually 60's or you drop to 60's often, your body may not have symptoms until bg > 40's. ...Read more

Poss med adjustment: There are a number of different oral medications for diabetes and each works in a unique manner. If you are having elevated post prandial sugars on you current regimen, you should talk to your doctor about adjusting your medications. Much depends on the overall control which is measured by the Hgba1c test. It also depends on how high the post prandial blood sugars are. Please see your doc. ...Read more

Then take that to your doctor who can adjust your dosing of insulin. DO NOT INCREASE INSULIN YOURSELF, unless you have a sliding scale from your doctor. ...Read more
