Re: [IP] Morning sugar rises


Yes I do have coffee, i'd have never thought this can raise my sugar. I 
drink it all day with no problems. If I sleep in my sugars are always 
good, so it's not my basal. Maybe I'll try a little bolus in the morning 
if I'm not going to have breakfast. Thanks for everyone's suggestions
