@dorisena I have had the same problem since I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 on April 7, 2016, almost three years ago. I was referred to an endocrinologist who did the entire check for everything to get the starting point for treatment. I had decided that I did not want to take any medication but to control with diet and exercise. That is what I have done, but my morning numbers are still higher than what they should be. The Dr. told me my morning should be 120 or lower and the afternoon should be under 180. However, my morning numbers are rarely in line; they are in the 130's, or 140's and sometimes higher depending on what is going on in my life. I am encased in stress and that always elevates my numbers. The one thing the endo. told me was that as long as the afternoon numbers had dropped and were in range, then he would not worry. He attributes my higher morning number to my age (75). He said as we get older, our organs slow down and as long as they continue to lower by afternoon, he is not concerned. So I have higher in the morning and then the numbers drop in the afternoon. I was exercising until I developed foot neuropathy; now I am having trouble walking, but I hope to find something that will help that so that I can get back to power walking again. I know exercise helps, but it doesn't make up for age. Are you older? There are ways to be in control of diabetes and there are situations where nothing helps. As they say, "It is what it is." We just have to do the best we can and hope we make good choices. I think we all will be better in the warm sunshine and pretty days. Let me know if I can do anything to help you and just to talk.
