[IP] Re:

Dawn Phenomenon simply put is the response to the body production of certain
hormones that elevate the blood glucose.  This effect varies from individual
to individual.  It usually occurs between 3:00am and 7:00 am and requires a
higher basal during that period.  You can determine this effect if at retiring
your blood glucose is in normal range (and you have not had a bed time snack)
and when you get up in the morning and your blood glucose is elevated.  You
then may need to increase the basal  at 5 or 6 (or 7) am to offset this.
