    Mine was 7.6 before breakfast this morning. It was 6.4 2 hrs after dinner last night. Can only assume my liver is working overtime in chucking glucose into the system(?).
    This sort of thing has been getting more noticeable over the last few months.
    I was diagnosed T2 about 13 months ago after 3 HbA1c's that my GP thought high... 50 , 48 & 43. Then no tests for 11 months. Last one was 39 last month.
    I keep to a very low carb diet, probably about 20g max per day. This year I've lost 3 stone...down to 13.5 stone now.
    No idea how to get FBG down. I don't use Metformin, just diet to try to control it.

    Hola asparagusp, don't forget to visit the Alcazar while you are in Serville. We went there in July and it was super hot. Now is a good time to visit Spain. Enjoy the fresh seafood and egg custards.

    it seems that diabetics type 2 has in average a more overactive liver as the general population, but that everybody can have a raise in the mornings... but that is counteracted by normals peoples effective and normal working insuline action... which type 2 do not have

    6.1 at 5:00am just as the sun has got over the horizon. 20° C at the moment so it's nice and cool. Gunna be a hot day with temps up into the mid 30's today.

    Sounds like DP. Have you tried a protein nibble last thing at night (a few nuts, or a small piece of cheese, etc.) ?

    Yes, probably dawn phenomenon.
    Recommended responses include eating dinner earlier but already dine at 6pm (early enough, I'd have thought). Also some activity after dinner - guilty. Tends to be just usual domestic chores and relaxing these days.
    I do often have a handful (or two) of walnuts during the evening but yet to see any benefit from that.
