>>If I eat a light supper then do a couple of hours of fairly heavy labor, then go to bed, I will wake up trembling and confused at 3 or 4 am with a bs reading of 40-50<<

We may be confusing a couple of issues here.
(Almost) all the time diabetics truly go low like that, is NOT due to some combo of food + exercise; but due to what we're taking (e.g, pills, insulin, pills + insulin, etc.). Those are the things..and mismatching them with the food and exercise, that send us low. 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??
