That is called the Dawn Phenomenon. This happens when the body percieved the blood glucose to be too low, and it tell the liver, "I need more glucose". The liver then dumps the glucose into the blood stream, and this results in a higher morning reading.

The next time you see your Doctor or Diabetes Educator ask him or her to explain it in better detail. Take your log book so you can show them what your readings are both in the evening and in the morning.

In the meantime, do you have a snack in the evening? If not, consider doing so, usually a half an apple and a piece of cheese, or maybe some peanut butter. You need the carb to keep the BS stable overnight, and the protien helps so it doesn't flood the system but allows for a slower steady release.... There is a list of appropriate snacks in the Spark library. Continue to test and record your snacks as well so they can see what you have done and how it is working for you.....

I am glad you are testing at night before bed as it is important to know what is happening in your body. Testing is the best way to know test, Test, TEST

Can someone please explain why my fasting blood sugar in the morning is often higher than the reading the evening before?

The meter read 93 this morning and after our TOPS picnic and a hand full of blueberries it read 143. I think I am doing okay for now. I'll keep testing though till if find out what are my patterns and what foods are troublesome.

See you later

Love, Judyemoticon

Judy,

You go girl!! Keeping the diabetes in control is the big hill we climb but you are on the right track. Diabetes most of the time brings cholesterol & High blood pressure with it. But the diet and meds help a lot.

I went to the Diabetes specialist at my clinic. She gave me a meter and taught me how to use it. I did it once while in her office and got a good reading. She suggested that I should try to stay under 160 after a meal and I did. My reading was 157. I am very pleased with that. Now I can see what is happening and keep a record of what foods cause me to have a spike and what keeps me on even keel.

Thank you all for your counsel. She was pleased that you were helping me out. So am I

Love, Judyemoticon
