It is essential to maintain consistent glucose levels throughout the day and night. Eating a meal that is balanced and low in carbohydrates before sleep can help keep glucose levels stable and prevent spikes and dips. Also, a healthy bedtime snack that contains good fats and protein can help maintain stable glucose levels.

Stabilising your glucose level during sleep with healthier options
• Try having a bowl of mixed nuts which can provide healthy fats to the body along with essential vitamins and minerals.
• Try a cup of soy milk which is rich in protein.
• Or consider having a cup of cow’s milk with turmeric, nutmeg or cinnamon for a satisfying and nourishing meal.

The body’s metabolic rate naturally slows down during sleep, which decreases the body’s ability to process and metabolise carbohydrates. If you eat a meal high in carbohydrates before going to bed, your body may struggle to process the excess glucose, which can lead to higher blood sugar levels. However, eating a balanced meal with a mix of protein, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates before sleep can help you maintain your glucose levels.
