    Don't panic its probably dawn phenomenon thats making your levels rise. It's something that happens to us all from time to time, which can be very frustrating

    You are doing really well
    This morning I woke up with 6.5, which was a bit disappointing considering i was below 6.0 for a few days. On the more encouraging side, today before lunch i was 4.5.... a record low that I hadn’t seen since diagnosis. Have a great day

    Keep at it.. comes down... dawn phenomenon is a real thing.. you will find many posts about it ... my way to address the dawn phenomenon has been:

    - dinner as early as feasible. I target to finish before 7:00 pm.

    - lowest level of carbs in dinner if possible no carbs at all.... No fruits after 4:00 pm.

    - include a bit of apple cider vinegar in dinner if whats on menu is conducive (dressing on salads usually). I avoid going too much, as it has other effects. Probably a couple of tea spoons or a tablespoon at max.

    - medication closer to bed time.

    Hope that helps
