I have type 2 diabetes and have established pretty good control. However, I have noticed my first morning blood sugar averages about 20-30 mg/dl [1.1-1.7 mmol/L] higher than my bedtime readings, even if I don’t eat for hours before bed, and if I test again after my morning walk it goes up another 20-30 mg/dl [1.1-1.7 mmol/L]. Is this normal? If so, what is the cause? What can I do to prevent it?

I am on pills for my diabetes, and in the morning I wake up with a normal blood sugar, but by about three hours after breakfast, if I don’t eat I get light headed, and I get the same feeling around 5:00-5:30 pm. I’m real good about not eating sweets, but lately, around 11:00 am, I have been eating a couple of peppermint candies which seems to help. Am I fooling myself?
