An apple a day...

At 3:00 am this morning I woke up with that oh-so-lovely disoriented feeling. I talked myself out of falling back to sleep, stumbled to the kitchen and checked my blood sugar...

45 mg/dl.


Two juice boxes and a couple of fruit roll-ups later I crawled back in to bed. This morning I woke up with the "I ate my pantry feeling." Yuck. Then I had the thought...

What is the point of brushing your teeth if you have to eat in the middle of the night to treat a low?

This cannot be good dental health. So, I asked my dentist. I let him know that brushing my teeth at 3:00 am was not really something that would ever happen for me.

He suggested, Rinse your mouth out with water before you go back to bed.

That is do-able. Maybe.

Does anyone else brush their teeth after regaining normality? Thoughts? Let me know!
