    7.1 this morning, highest reading I have had in 3 weeks. Had a really bad night's sleep, woke up feeling very tired. Last night was a low carb meal a 5pm. Was 6.1 I hour after and 5.2 2 hours after. Don't understand why it's so high today, I have had lower readings every morning for weeks :(

    A bad night's sleep usually causes mine to go up - so does a lie in - strange that!

    Anyone else have it always high in morning no matter what I’ve eaten the night before.
    Ranges between 8 and 9.8

    Maybe that is the "phenomenon" part of "dawn phenomenon." My FBG seems to have nothing to do with what I ate or drank the night before or how much sleep I got.

    6.9 this morning after eating better yesterday than for the two previous days.

    6.7 this morning.
    Bloods were 7.00 last night when I went to bed haven't a clue why last thing I had to eat was at 5:30. Needed to miss breakfast to get bloods back to something reasonable. So frustrating!
