Sep 17, 2018 · High readings in A.M. to low in A.M. and afternoon. Why? in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Hi, I have the same issue.Its called early dawn syndrome. As we sleep our body towards dawn dumps more sugar into our system to prepare us for getting up and getting ready for the day. Traditionally we would have been very active so that was good, these days we don’t go hunting for food so we don’t need that sugar spike which happens to everyone except more to type 2,As we age out pancreas becomes less efficient and thus type 2.
The one thing I learnt was it’s not necessary to ake your numbers 5 times a day. What is relevant is your overall A1C numbers taken every 3 months.
My morning numbers are slightly high but my 3 month A1C with medication shows that my numbers are at the level of a non diabetic.But Bi used to panic at my morning numbers. You could try having a snack of lightly peanut buttered toast .

Hi, I haven't been active in the forum for awhile but would like to ask the moderator if there is someone I can contact at the Mayo Clinic to ask about my morning numbers which are getting high even with metformin and glycoside. All other numbers are controlled , only morning is problematic.Im wondering if I s/b overly concerned as others have indicated their health care teams don't consider it alarming.

Hi, Sorry, I didn't read the transplant part till after I sent the reply. My wife is on Humera which does as you describe. The thing is im not qualified to give medical advice but I don't think a few tsps of cough suppressant would increase those functions.

Hi, so wouldn't a product that boosts your immune system be o.k., because the other meds are decreasing your immune system.Or am I on the wrong track?

Just read your post, my wife and I found an excellent product for cough suppressan, it's Sambucus and made from Elderberry, works very well for us and is available in sugar free.its available at Walgreens in the U.S. and health food stores.

I just noticed your post, I have tried turmeric and it has a minimal effect for me but does give me gut burning.
