Morning glucose test - higher when cold?

I’ve been diabetic for nearly 45 years. I can tell you that EVERYTHING affects blood sugar and vice versa; blood sugar affects EVERYTHING! Everyone is different. There is not a “one size“ diagnosis, treatment or prognosis. @Itssjs mentioned the “dawn effect”. There is another similar phenomena called symoji (sp?) effect. They are things that can help explain patterns in blood sugar. Sometimes nothing makes any sense. Just do your best with a lot of testing, data collection, trial and error. Be thankful for the victories. Try again after the flubs. Know that you aren’t alone. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you travel this journey.

Never heard of "dawn effect" or "Symoji". Will check into these. This is what i'm finding out. EVERYTHING effects your blood sugar. Thanks for help. My doctor is useless. $75.00 co-pay whenever I go and still no answers. I pay out of pocket to see a dietician. Doing this on my own by changing my lifestyle. It's a ride!! I've lost 30 pounds and dropped A1C to 5.8. Just working on getting on track after the Holidays. Again, thanks for the help.
