    Could be, if your Levemir dose is on the high side for what you actually nee, it does have a peak a few hours after injecting. Have you done basal testing?

    Or it could be that you've been more active than you usually are. Or the 13.8 was a rogue reading. How long have you had diabetes? Could be your pancreas has decided to do something for a change if you haven't been diabetic for a long time. What are your bg's usually like at this time of day?
