Why Would My Fasting Sugar Levels Be Higher In The Morning, Than It Is After Dinner And I Don't Eat Or Snack After My Last Meal ??

Everyone is a bit different. If you are like me, if I do not eat within an allotted amount of time, my liver kicks in to supply my body with sugar, but because of the diabetes it always makes too much. When it happens overnight, this is called Dawn Phenomenon. I used ot wake up every morning with sugars ranging from 8-11 (148-200) until I started taking a snack of about 15 carbs + protein at bedtime (apple slices with peanut butter, crackers with tuna, protein bar). Because I put the sugars in before bed, the body would not kick in so soon to make them for me, so now I wake every morning in the 4-5 (72-90) range.
