I'm the opposite - most sensitive in the afternoon and least 
sensitive in the morning.  Although I seem to be a lot more sensitive 
now than I used to be.  Instead of my BG rising 50+ points after 
waking up and before eating, it now just goes up a little or not at 
all.  It's even dropped sometimes recently.  I always check when I 
wake up, then I take my Levoxyl and go about getting ready.  Check 
again in an hour and have breakfast.

My sensitivity/correction is now set at 55.
