Why would your sugar be in the 60's before going to bed and then 145 in the morning??

and you haven't eaten anything yet. Why the big difference?? Just wondering if anyone else has had this and if you can explain why this happens. Thanks

  • Your body knows that you will be in a low blood sugar state by morning so your LIVER kicks out glucose to keep your body going. Mine does this every night. Try eating a small, very small snack before bed...a couple of saltine squares with a thin smear of peanut butter.

  • When you sleep your metabolism slows down and therefore doesn't need the sugar to keep you moving like it does throughout the day.
