I have a couple of queries about this. My readings are nearly always normal except first thing in the morning. Some people have suggested a carb snack before bed but I have just been reading up on this and everything points to NOT having carbs before bed? Can anyone clarify this please? When I was "diagnosed" (the doc just said my sugar was a bit high) this was following a routine fasting blood test, so I'm wondering if, as I've read that non-diabetic people can have the dawn phenomenon, I am in fact pre-diabetic at all? There is obviously some kind of issue though so even if this is the case I will continue the way I'm going on with low carb & fasting...I'm just a bit curious!
