Re: carbs

Morning numbers often go up because of the dawn phenomenon. What happens is that your liver triggers the release of glucose into your system to prepare for the day. Sometimes a small carb snack with fat or protein the night before will short circuit this. Something like peanutbutter and a couple of small crackers. This works for some people, but not everyone.
