You're not saying you reach 40 in the middle of the night without meds (or, are you?). i.e, you don't control via 'just' diet and exercise, and hit 40??

No, I take my glipizide (5mg) just before supper. Glipizide before supper, light evening, bed, all is OK. Glipizide before very same supper, heavy exercise, bed, then hit 40 - 50 about 5 or 6 hours after exercise (or at least that's when I wake up.) Since the glipizide was so far removed in time from the low, I hadn't considered it. Thanks for the tip. I wonder if that means that I should take less/no glipizide before supper on nights when I plan yard work?
