    I have an excellent record of BM's but can anyone tell me why it is my morning BM can be 4.1 but has risen to about 5 maybe an hour later even though I haven't eaten anything?? I know, I know, breakfast is important, but I haven't eaten breakfast since I was 15, so I'm not gonna start now!! Maybe that's why I'm T2 :lol: :lol: No breakfast?? :lol: :roll: :lol: :roll:

    You don't have to eat or drink anything for Bg levels to fluctuate. Your levels will fluctuate from second to second, minute by minute, hour by hour etc. They will never remain static. It is a normal response of the body........

    As you were close to the low hypo (4 mmol/l) level it may have dropped even lower with just normal activity after waking.......the liver will then automatically 'dump' glucose into the bloodstream to elevate the levels. If you had a shower or something it may also have put the level up slightly.

    Everything you do will have an effect........
