    Although my hours of sleep have got better when I get a night that sleeping hours are reduced I always have a higher g/l reading. Have also checked if there is a difference due to what I have eaten but there is little difference pre sleep g/l readings on most nights
    its just the first morning ones that the g/l rise coincides with the restless and shortened sleep.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Absolutely, sleep is so important and there have been studies on the diabetes risk in night shift workers.

    Stress and lack of sleep definately effect my fasting levels

    Yes, true for me too. I don't sleep well at all and wake quite a bit overnight. Readings are always higher the morning after a particularly sleepless night
