Yeah, it's true. I avoid this thread as if it were the plague because I don't have the amazing numbers that y'all have in the mornings so it kind of intimidates me. The dawn phenomenon is very active in my life.

That being said, it's time for me to come out of the closet with my fasting numbers so that others know that not everyone has picture perfect numbers.

So, here it is...

This morning when I woke up, my blood sugar was 141.

A few hours later, after drinking a cup of Bullet Proof coffee, my blood sugar was 108. Go figure.

Haha, Cricket count me as well as someone who doesn't have non-diabetic fasting numbers. Which is why you don't see me in the other thread. People will realize I'm a fraud and run me out with pitchforks! :devil:

Before going on an insulin pump, I was happy to see anything south of 160. The last week, I've been seeing a gradual decline, and am waking up in the 120's and not having to immediately correct to slow the rise. Thanks to not having to correct in the morning my TDD has come down from 120 to 90.

Insulin is magic.

I swear I could just post that same response over and over again. Same thing this morning. LOLOL

My CGM said 88 this morning! Haha, I knew that was wrong, calibrated with my meter and came up with 138. That's what I get for sleeping on my "cgm arm". :devil:
Were ya excited for a minute though? :biggrin:

Mine is 138 this morning. Once I eat or have some bullet proof coffee it will come right back down.
A short time later I drank a protein shake I made (unsweetened coconut milk and protein powder) instead of my coffee because I was in the mood for something else. A few hours after that my reading was 115.

I pretty much feel like I'm in the same boat. My morning numbers tend to be in the 120-145 range, not sure how anyone wakes up with it under 100. Oh well.

Mine this morning was 137 (7.6).

It can be frustrating right? This afternoon I am down to 99 so it never quite makes sense to me. :vs_coffee:

I woke up this morning not feeling terrific, after a restless night of sleep. It definitely showed up in my numbers this morning. 148

Nope I didn't get too many carbs. (I average 20 per day or less.) My body just decided to play more stupid than normal today.

112 this morning. What the number is depends on when DP begins its work - sometimes its before I wake up, other times is a bit after getting up.

I have a follow-up appointment this afternoon with the rheumatologist to go over the labs taken on my first visit. I have some sort of autoimmune thing going on which keeps me on the tired side. Sometimes, like yesterday, I just vegetate the whole day. This morning I'm pretty good so I'll be able to do some volunteer work at the thrift store before heading out for my appointment. The weather is cooperating - sun's out even though it's cold.

Just a follow up on this. Once again, A few hours after eating (I had a protein shake, that I make, this morning. 3 carbs.) my blood sugar is down to 91. For those who might be wondering, no I did not take medication yet today. I take my Metformin ER at 2pm and around 10pm. (Yes, I have tried moving the times around.) This is just a daily game I seem to play with diabetes.

A 91 (5.1) this afternoon after a bit of a nap. Two weeks until my next graveyard shift.
