Dawn Phenomena

Recommended Posts

JohnSchroeder

Does anyone have any advice on how to mitigate or reduce dawn phenomena?  Its really been doing a number on me lately.  This morning I went from a very steady 50-55 overnight (yeah, that's a bit low, I know) and around 5 or 5:30 AM my sugar started spiking.  All the way up to 180 by 8:30 AM, without eating a single carb.

 

I don't believe this is a basal issue because I am using Tresiba which supposedly lasts in your system for about 72 hours.  But if others have used Tresiba and have to split the dose, I am all ears.  I just do my basal once a day in the morning.

I don’t have an answer for you John. But, if you figure it out please let me know. My dp isn’t quite as bad as yours but still climbs 30+ points.

I have heard that actually consuming some carbs can decrease DP.    DP is the body getting ready for a day of hunting and scavenging, so it kinda makes sense to moderate the effect try a good breakfast.  They call it the most important meal of the day.

 

 But you will have to try for yourself I can't say I ever tried to deal with DP.   I am too attached to coffee and toast in the morning.
