Signs in the morning that your blood sugar levels are high

Diabetes is a health condition that requires treatment, and it's important to keep blood sugar levels in the target range as much as possible to help prevent or delay serious long-term health problems, such as heart disease, vision loss and kidney disease, but often, patients don't know how. Blood sugar levels can change throughout the day. In the morning there is a shift in blood sugar levels due to hormonal changes in the body.

According to Medical News Today, the five main symptoms to identify for a diabetes warning include:



blurry vision


extreme thirst

According to the report, the main reason why everyone experiences a slight rise in blood sugar in the morning is our normal biological systems in which production of the hormone insulin (which lowers glucose) is suppressed during sleep, and levels of other hormones that raise glucose (growth hormone, glucagon and cortisol) ) Increase.

There is also a theory known as the Somogyi effect that suggests that in people with diabetes who take insulin, high blood sugar in the morning can be a rebound effect of using too much insulin.

blood sugar levels

Before meals: 80 to 130 mg/dL.

Two hours after starting a meal: less than 180 mg/dL.

The CDC also says that your blood sugar goals may be different depending on your age, any additional health problems you have and other factors. Be sure to talk to your doctor about which goals are best for you.

How to manage a morning rise in blood glucose:

Ask your doctor if you can take your medication or insulin at bedtime rather than at dinnertime.

Eat dinner early in the evening and do a light exercise after dinner.

Avoid snacks that contain carbohydrates at bedtime or else your sugar levels will rise and make you hungrier soon which is a bad idea.

If your glucose levels are high in the morning, talk to your doctor for individual diet and lifestyle advice, and a review of your current medications.

Talk to your doctor, he/she may want to change your medication or dose.

Drink enough fluids to maintain hydration.

Don't miss the breakfast.
