RE: [IP] Medtronic Paradigm 523 Question



 I'm not sure how you'd handle that. For me the only time this happens is when I
get hosed on beer the night before or have milk before bed. It's just something
I expect.

 Honestly, I would try going to just prepackaged items at breakfast for a few
days. Try two muffins and butter one day, instead of one muffin and peanut
butter. Assuming no spikes, then slowly introduce one non-prepackaged item a
day, and see when the spikes re-occur.

 Is your husband making his latte in the machine before yours? Could it be he's
using something with sugar that isn't in your drink, and the residue is making
its way into yours?

 If none of those pan out, it could be something called the "dawn phenomenon".

Interesting... How would I account for that if my bedtime sugar was fine?
