I seem to crash a few hours before I wake up. I guess the deal is your body makes hormones then that counter-act insulin some.... This is always way worse if I have eaten more in the day or before bed. It is like being diabetic or something, but this is the only time I show symptoms in that way. During the day or any other time I am not peeing sweet or anything like that. I might feel a little weird after eating but it is at night where it goes wrong.

Any insight about this? It is like stress levels are too high so boom in the middle of the night blood shot eyes, pee, and everything calms back down.

If by CRASH you mean your glucose drops real low (which I think you mean)  You NEED food about 8 PM.

I learned that glucose should be check every night about 8PM or 3 hrs before bed.

If the number is below 100, you need to have something to carry you through the night
like a piece of fruit and a few nuts or seeds or 1-2oz of meat/poultry/fish your allowed.
If you numbers are below 70, at this time, you need 15 grams of carbohydrate immediately, like fruit eaten quickly or juice (1/2 cup down the hatch) wait fifteen minutes, check again if it raised 15, in ONE HOUR it should have raised another 35=50, if it didn't raise 15 or is still below 70, have another 1/2 cup juice, do the same thing.  Have glucose tablets at your bedside, at all times. (If anyone has false teeth and removes them at night, have them there too) lol, these tablets need to be chewed. I knew someone who was 21, at 3AM she was almost passed out her husband knew what to do and also called 911, this is a serious problem.

It may be what you're eating before bed.  Make sure you have a little bit of protein with whatever you're eating.  Or, eat some seeds or nuts before bed.  But not too much protein.  Your liver works while sleeping, so....  Too much fat and protein too late could mess with you.  What time do you eat last and what do you eat, if you dont' mind me asking.  Maybe it just needs a little tweak.

Or, it could be just a phase.  I remember you saying you don't digest your meats that well either, and maybe your body is just craving more.  At one time I had similar problems and would wake up craving cheese.  I would eat some and go right back to bed.  It was like the perfect solution at the time.  I'm not eating dairy now though.

Usually before bed is when I get real weak and have to eat something.  When I was dorm last year it was bad since the cafeteria closed at 6:30pm.  So I usually had to have snacks in my room.

The latest is krill oil.  You can also try alpha lipoic acid or have some cayenne pepper in water when you get up.

I think I wake up with high blood sugar, then pee, then it drops lower but sometimes too low.

I just read about low blood sugar. That is certainly me after I wake and pee. The question is, is my blood sugar higher before? The symptoms are very much low blood sugar symptoms.

Could it just be insulin resistance?

No, I usually do not want sweets unless I already had some. I am wondering if I am not digesting protein possibly. I ate mozzarella which always does somewhat wondrous good things for me even though the taste is so so to me; but I slept better.

My son is blood type A with hypoglycemia.  He eats protein before bedtime and this carries him through the night.
