Carbohydrate craving
Maur1216 posted:
I often wake up craving carbohydrates. Any insight into this or suggestions on how to handle the cravings? Also, my blood glucose levels are always within normal limits when I get the cravings, so it is not hypoglycemia

If you wake up in the morning craving carbs, then you are probably hungry. You can eat a moderate amount of a whole grain carb that you know does not raise your blood glucose readings along with some lean protein for breakfast.

Have you seen a nutritionist, dietician or certified diabetes education to help you develop a good eating plan that works for you? That would be a good idea.
