Re: Sugar High in AM
Blood sugar is often higher in the morning due to something called the Dawn Phenomenon. This is where your liver releases stored glucose in preparation for the busy day ahead. It happens to everyone, diabetic and non-d alike. Since people with diabetes do not metabolize the glucose properly, it ends up being higher due to this phenomenon. Some people have luck short circuiting this event by eating a small snack (with some protein and carb or fat) at bedtime. It doesn't work for everyone, but some find success.
Hope this helps a bit.
