Hi, I was diagnosed T2 on New Years Eve, with an HbA1C reading of 97. GP advised me to try to lose weight (BMI of 27, about 1.5 stone overweight) and so I have embarked on a LCHF diet, although more LC than HF! If I don't get my HbA1C reading down, then GP will consider meds. So I have been good about diet (I exercise loads anyway) and also bought a meter a few days ago. Readings during the day have been ok, but i have been 6.7 in the last three mornings. Last night I was 7.1 two hours after dinner, then was 6.7 on waking (7am). Ive just been to the gym (no breakfast), have just tested again (10.30 am) and the reading is now 10.2! All I've had since 7pm last night is two cups of black coffee and lots of water. Prior to diagnosis I always had breakfast, either toast or porridge. I haven't had breakfast since diagnosis, as the low carb options don't apppeal, plus on weekdays I haven't got time to do anything like bacon and eggs. I've read about dawn syndrome (liver dumping) on here, but still can't understand why the sugar levels are rising through the morning when I'm not eating anything. Would it be better to eat something like eggs first thing, or would that just push the levels up even more? I'd be really interested to know if anyone else has found that eating a low carb breakfast brought their sugar levels down.
