High bg's in the morning many times indicate a low during the night. 
You need to have good basal profiles and a good understanding of how 
to set them and keep them regulated. Your CDE can help you with this 
and you can gain good insight and knowledge about this by reading the 
chapter in Pumping Insulin about setting basals and the HOWTO on the 
Insulin Pumpers web site at:

"HOWTO profle your BASAL RATES"
