During the last two months, my FBS have been running quite high, 140- 210, no apparent answers in anything that I am doing or not doing. In about a month I will have a 72 hr meter attached and that will measure my BG’s for three days at five minute intervals. But inbetween that time and now, I have been taking measurements in the early hours of the AM. My dh goes to work at 4:00 so that is a help. Each morning for the last two weeks, my lowest sugar has been between 3:00 - 5:00 at about 80-130 ---- which is within range of what we want me at. However, three - four hours later at 7 - 8:00 in the AM; they go up as much as 20 points, even though I haven’t eaten or drank anything as yet. My diabetic nurse thinks that possibly my liver kicks in and takes over for while until I get up and get something in my stomach.
Other answers have been, mostly “interesting, we’ll keep an eye on it”.
So now I’ve come to the people who have some knowledge of diabetes and ask you, “Any ideas why I can’t keep it low in the AM until I get up, yet low in the middle of the night?”
