From North Carolina, USA:

Hi, my blood sugar is higher in the morning than at night most of the time. I have Type 2 diabetes and I am not taking any medicine -- just dieting right now and watching my sugar intake. Is this normal, and if not, what should I do about it?


Yes, it's normal: this is called the dawn phenomenon. And it's hard to treat. If you are eating a bedtime snack, you could try decreasing or eliminating it.
