I'm hoping someone might have an idea of why I seem to spike just prior to lunch. I have good fasting numbers, usually 125 or less. I take my basal of Lantus around 7 a.m. I'm not much of a breakfast eater so if my fasting sugar is below 90, I don't take any bolus. If my fasting sugar is around 120, I take a unit or two. I don't want to take too much since I'm not going to eat anything for several more hours. Why, then, is my blood sugar 250 or more when I'm checking it before lunch when I have had absolutely nothing to eat since the night before. I have taken my morning basal shot and it's like it did nothing. My only though is that it's stored sugar being released from my liver. Does anyone know how to stop that from happening?
This doesn't happen every day, but it does happen enough to be aggravating.
