Another tip I had to try to get the fasting sugars a little lower was to have a straight protein middle of the night snack when you wake up at one point. I was doing peanuts for this, but that was before I was on the glyburide and it helped a little, but not enough - haven't done that since I started the meds though.
I had been having a glass of milk and/or juice in the middle of the night when I woke up. But now I think I have to stop.
