    @pinklady69 your fasting reading of 6.5 for your first fasting reading is within target for type 2. Do post on the Type 2 Life thread and then we can give you more help and guidance.

    A higher reading first thing in the morning is likely to be due to the 'Dawn Phenomenon' where your liver dumps stored glucose into your blood when you wake to get you going. It is quite normal, even for non-diabetics.

    I seem to have had the liver dump this morning. When I tested at 0640 my reading was 6.9. After a mug of coffee with cream at 0700, my reading at 0900 was 5.4.
