Hi all, I'm new to posting the forum, but have found it to be a very useful resource in the past. I'd love to know if anyone else has experienced morning insulin resistance. Over the past few months I have noticed that my sugars have been climbing quite high post breakfast. I do suffer from the dawn phenomenon so sometimes I can wake with higher sugars. I like to get these under control before breakfast, so I will normally take a few units of Humalog and wait until I get to work to eat. I'll then take my mealtime insulin and wait at least 30mins for this to kick in. I'm not eating anything abnormal (porridge with milk and a black coffee, maybe some fruit). I've been working on a ratio of 1:5 for this, but even if I increase the level of insulin it doesn't seem to help! Today my sugars shot up from 7 to 17 two hours after eating! It was as if I hadn't taken any Humalog at all!!! Could this be an insulin problem, an injection site problem, or an issue with the types of food that I'm eating? I know that sometimes coffee can interfere with my insulin absorption, but I have found that adequately pre-bolusing and drinking it with food can really help control this. Has anyone experienced this and found a solution? I have spoken to my doctors, who just keep telling me to correct the highs, but I'd rather get to the root cause of the problem and address this. It's getting to the stage where I'm having to take insulin, even though I'm not eating anything!! Even when I don't eat my sugars rise at this time of day! Catch-22!
