So I’ve never had Dawn Phenomenon. Even right before I started on insulin (LADA being treated as type 2) when my post prandials were soaring up into the 300s and even 400s, my fasting had just slowly climbed up into the 120s or 130s. These days my fasting is usually under 100. But then in the last week I’ve had high numbers either when I first get up, before breakfast or after my usual breakfast and bolus like say 160-180 which is crazy high for me in the morning.
I don’t see any reason why I would all of a sudden develop DP when it hasn’t been a part of my diabetes since diagnosis 3 1/2 years ago. Is DP related to insulin resistance? Again I don’t see why I would develop that all of a sudden. I haven’t gained weight at all and my insulin use has actually decreased since I started my pump on 1/8.
Maybe that is it. I reduced my basal by 20% when I first started and now have reduced it another 10% to not have daily lows. Maybe this level is fine for the rest of the day but not the early morning? Could I have different basal needs in the morning even though I don’t have DP? So I am going to try raising it back up 10% or more for 6AM to 10AM. I usually get up around 8AM and eat breakfast an hour later. Any other suggestions?
