    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I am around 85-140 in the am and take my levo when I get up. They say to wait an hour to eat. By the time I can eat, my sugars are up to 140-200! How can I get passed these numbers?

    Barb I take mine at 5:30am and go back to sleep for an hour then I take my blood sugar readings. I have tested my sugars before taking my Levothyroxine and I always take it the hour after but my sugar numbers only go up 4 points.

    What other meds are you on that can cause you to have such high AM numbers. Some night time meds can cause high sugars. It can also be dawn phenomenon. Deb
