    Thought I would test a bit later to see if the 5.3 levels were limited to early morning; so - around 10.30am it was 5.7. I can cope with that...shame I had to lie in longer (purely for the purposes of this test).

    5.3 at 6:10 am, got away from the fours. :D

    I originally had a lft done twenty plus years ago in a check up, it showed that the it was high. My GP at the time asked how much did alcohol influence my life, I told him I liked beer on a cold day as well.

    He told me to cut booze out of my life for a year, as it would have gone on to for me to get Cirrhosis of the liver. I did and the just drunk in moderation while lft is still being done evert three months.

    @Down-Jai 001 Do a search for 'Dawn Phenomenon' in the search box at top right corner.
    Basically our livers dump stored glucose into our blood stream as we wake to give us energy as we get going for the day. It is quite normal, and non-diabetics can get it too.
