    Eating at regular times is important to help keep blood sugars on track by preventing overeating if there is too much space between meals. Overeating can contribute to higher blood sugars from excess food intake.Your liver can also play a role in raising blood sugars by pouring glucose into the bloodstream if a person goes too long without eating.

    On the other hand if someone is taking certain diabetes medications, inconsistent eating times can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).

    It can be challenging with shift work to eat at regular times. Meeting with a registered dietitian can help you plan a schedule that will work best for you.
