Good links, thank you.

Yes the "dawn phenomenon" is really bad. I had never heard of the Somogyi Effect. Very interesting.

I had a very low carb day. The next morning I was 107. Over the weekend I will test myself for the Somogyi Effect. I am not on any medications. Until recently I was not taking care of my body. Now I have reduced (not removed) my carbs and sugar.

These are great readings MindfulSpark26! Before dinner tonight I was at 105, and 2 hours later I was at 179... I had a tomato/parsley/bulghur wheat salad (tabouleh), and I know now I can't have it.

As another example: This morning (5AM) I was 105. 2 hrs later, after only drinking coffee (1/2 caf, black) I was 93.

I read some of the books from phlaunt.com/diabetes/

And she suggests that we don't even waste strips in the morning. That what we are experiencing is common and really does not show anything.

Thanks MindfulSpark26 for the response. Glad to know that someone else is having the struggle. My morning reading was 108 this morning. I have said it before .... if it wasn't for my wife researching and trying to cook the right way...I don't know where I would be in this struggle. Hang in there ....

I too have morning readings from 100 -120.

2 hrs after a meal I am usually 85-110 (usually in the low 90's). I am not on any meds, just working on a better diet. My last A1C was 5.7

Termitemom....thanks for the reply. I took my reading this morning and it was 110. I have had a couple of A1C test 6.4 was the highest I think ...5.9 the lowest. I guess it is just continuing to watch what I eat ....exercise..... and yes it was metformin. I am going to continue with the diet, exercise route until I just have to take meds. Thanks for the reply.

My readings in the morning are high too, no matter what I do. But 2 hours (not 3) after a meal I take my blood and it is within a normal range. So, I do not worry too much.
What is the medicine the doctor wants you on? Is it Metformin? Metformin is safe.
Another thing: have you ever has an A1C test? It measures your average level over the past 3 months. You may want to ask for it.

Hi everyone...haven't been here for a while. I have been having readings in the morning between 114 and 124. I have been watching diet ..not to much carbs ....just about totally cut out sugar ..except for Stevia... and what is in some foods. But when I take a reading like today about 3 hours after a snack...the reading is 94. I am exercising about 20 minutes most days. I am not taking any medicine. Am I being to concerned? If I go see the doctor.....he wants me to go on meds. Don't want to! Any ideas?
