Given up on posting FBG. Almost always between 6-6.5 unless I have a meal with mushroom and cream, then I can get it down to 5.6 or similar. On the upside I hardly ever go over 7.8 PP
6.3 again ~late night Options in coffee? ~ Does anyone here experience BG going up with Options? ( Diet ch0c drink)
Elevated blood sugars more or less exclusively in the morning is a common concern. This is known as “the Dawn Phenomenon” and occurs due to hormonal effects in the morning. It may actually be even more pronounced on a low-carb diet, compared to other diets.
Many people get surprised as their average sugars (measured by A1c) goes down nicely on low carb, blood sugars are great during the day… but morning sugars may stay elevated.
This is normally a natural phenomenon, caused by a morning elevation of cortisol and other hormones that cause the liver to release glucose, thus raising blood sugar levels. This can be thought of as a way for the body to prepare you for getting active again, after sleeping.
Seems like I'm pretty normal then 6.0 this am
