    Hey - ideally what would be a number that suggests a dawn phenomenon? I say this because before bed it was 6 so it had risen overnighy, maybe not drastically but still..

    It's supposed to 4.5- 5 on waking. My db nurse says that below 7 is ok. I find the only problem with that is after having breakfast it's going to go even higher and take longer to get back to normal. I don't like mine being above 6.

    FBG is tricky. My last few Hb tests have been in the 30' s but my FBG is still up and down.

    I've been in this state for about 5 months and managed to get my HBA1C back below 48 in three months. The only thing I can't get right, and believe me I've tried all sorts, is my morning blood sugar levels. Low carb diet and exercise keeps it down but I've got below 5 once.
