It is called dawn syndrome involving the low BG of the early morning and a spurt of released glucose from the liver to cover it. Other causes could be a late night carbohydrate snack that digests slowly, sometimes a snack that has been digested with an alcoholic drink that slows the digestion of the carbohydrates until later. Take your choice.

Interesting. But I haven't been having a snack because of readings in the morning. Dr. just sprung this on me and I don't go to him until first week of Dec.
