Das, R K; Nessa, A; Hossain, M A; Siddiqui, N I; Hussain, M A Obesity is a condition in which the body fat stores are increased to an extent which impairs health and leads to serious health consequences. The amount of body fat is difficult to measure directly, and is usually determined from an indirect measure - the body mass index (BMI). Increased BMI in obese persons is directly associated with an increase in metabolic disease, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus. This Analytical cross sectional study was undertaken to assess the relation between obesity and glycemic control of body by measuring fasting serum glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin.

    Before bed snacks

    Ok everybody. My doctor (due to my original blood glucose tests) determined after I was diagnosed that my sugars were high in the morning because my liver causes too much glucose to be produced while I am sleeping. My morning blood sugrs HAVE been coming down but have stablized around 107/108. The last 2 nights I have had a handful of Sunchips (15) about an hour before I went to bed and BOTH mornings my bg levels were 100!! I've heard that is you snack (healthy with a bit of protein and carb) it can help your blood sugar levels. Has anyone else seen this effect or experience this? What do you snack on at night (healthy) that helps???
    (A little FYI: While you sleep and the blood glucose level drops. This signals the liver that more glucose is needed in the blood. The liver converts glycogen into glucose and glucose is dumped into the blood bringing the blood sugar back to a normal level. Sometimes the liver gets excited and produces too much.)

    I would like to know also. My morning bs is always high. Protein and carb? Peanut butter/crackers?

    So I've figured out some stuff. I can't snack on dairy. It makes my bs go up in the am. Wile grain has been good and so far sun chips have been the best snack! My bs has been as low as 96 when I snack on them at night. So much for not eating junk food!!!
