Default High FBG + Low A1C???

Hello, I'm new and I'm totally confused. My morning blood sugar is always high, today it was 137. Yet, I had an A1C done and it came back 5.1.. which I understand is pretty good?? How can the morning sugar be so high if my overall sugar is well within normal limits? Thanks for any input.

I Die not understand in the beginning either. Then I was sent in the right direction: search this forum for dawn phenomena or liver fumes and should clear some things up.

Do you test your after meal bgs. The higher bgs in the morning are probably due to something called Dawn Phenomenon. DP is a natural response when hormones like cortisol, adrenaline and growth hormone are produced in the early morning hours and these hormones signal liver to produce glucose. I would imagine during the day you probably have significant lows which make your bg average much lower. Are you on any meds?
