The past two days my bs has been 116 and 126 before breakfast and then 94last night. What causes it to be high in the morning? Am I doing something wrong? I stopped taking metaformin 3 days ago. Could this be it? Before bed I usually have an apple, bit of cheese and Muscle Milk which is high in protein, low in cholesterol.

Yeah, if your numbers go too low while fasting at night your liver will dump lots of glucose into your system, resulting in higher morning numbers. You might have better luck if you make your bedtime carb a very slow release carb, like a whole grain with some fat and/or protein instead of fruit. I usually eat my fruit as morning snack and with lunch.

At night your counter regulatory hormones kick in and produce glucose and insulin so your cells have food. The trouble is if your insulin cells don't work as well it leaves you with higher glucose readings. Also if u ate A big dinner night before then your basal insulin is working too hard from that meal and leaves u too low on insulin, so when your nighttime hormones make glucose for your cells you have no or not enough insulin to bring it to the cells, leaving u with higher morning readings
