When I was first diagnosed with T2 my dr said she wanted my morning readings to be less than 120, I was diagnosed back in May (2006) and was put on 1,000mg of Metromin (per day) my levels are doing good, but my mornings are still high.  I had my follow-up and my fasting went from 304 to 146 (still high but better), previously I went to the dr and advised about my high mornings, after she got my test results back she increased my meds to 1,500mg per day, well I am not sure if that did the trick, but yesterday my morning reading was 120 and this morning it was 119.  Should I have hope that the increase in meds is helping my morning readings?

Sure! Are you doing anything else? Different snack before bed, etc? I take 1500 mg of metformin (1000 extended release + 500 regular release) before bed and it doesn't seem to be doing anything more than before- I also take 500mg with breakfast and dinner- and I am nice and low all day long. I was recently removed from Actos, so my hope is to lose the bloat it caused. Maybe my AM number (115-120) will come down then! Sandy :-)

I can't really say that I did do anything "different."  I began taking the increase in my metformin on Monday, Tuesday I took the kids out for Halloween came home late and had a late dinner, went to bed with a reading of 155, woke up with a reading of 120, then Wednesday night I went to bed with a reading of 166 (probably from few pieces of candy I had) and woke up with a reading of 119.  I hope that this continues.  The high mornings had me really really depressed.  My doc says 120 and below is good for me so... I hope this continues, but not to low!
