How Dawn-Phenomena

I am an old TYPE2 diabetes. The morning fasting glucose is always hard for me to control. It is usually 135 mg/dL, the more sometimes it reaches140!

Friends told me that it is "Morning-Phenomena".
I never got a way to control it.

Could you please tell me how?

  1. Hi! Great question. We have a few posts on the Dawn Phenomenon and what may help - and we always recommend speaking with your doctor or care team as well! Some find a nighttime snack to help with morning numbers:
