Im having some unexplained Lows between the hours of 5pm-7pm. its a big pain in the butt because Im usually just arriving to the gym at this time and it gets in the way of my workout. My levels can be around 250, around 3-5pm, and ill typically avoid dosing because I know I am working out, and they still sometimes dip to 60s-70s sometimes around this time. I am having afternoon snacks etc that include complex carbs and protein.
I give long acting insulin at 9pm at night. My levels in the morning however are usually a little higher (180 this morning).
My doctor suggested that this might be related to the “Peak” of lantus insulin and that I might benefit by switching my long acting insulin dose to the AM instead of pm. Has anyone done this or experienced this low?
