My highest BS reading of the day is my fasting BS. Any ideas why or what I can do about it?
It's been like this pretty much since diagnosis (once I had got my diet controlled). I have tested at 2am, and my BS is perfectly within range then whether I have a bedtime snack or not. But, in the morning, it can range from 6.5 (117) to 8 (144) or higher during my period.
At the moment I'm trying to compensate for it by not eating a proper breakfast. I start eating little bits of food throughout the morning starting a couple of hours after waking to give my body time to deal with the BS.
I'm treating myself with diet and the occasional Metformin (when I have to eat out or during illness etc). I was taking Metformin regularly but even then I had high fasting BS.
