I have a problem with high moring readings. Sometimes my bedtime readings are lower than th AM readings.
Strange as it seems - if I reduce my night time meds my moring sugars are better.
I just started insulin at bed time. Again as I increase to number of units my moring sugars are high.
Any one with a similar problem????

You may be experiencing what is called the dawn phenomenon. If you click on the link below it will take you to the different past posts that discuss this.

You may want to talk this over with your doctor and decide how to adjust your meds. An evening snack can also help with this.
