What changes the numbers from morning to night. It is often that the numbers are high in the morning and low at night, Is this normal. Are you supposed to be closed to the same numbers every time you post.

Hi,

Your numbers are probably higher in the morning because while you sleep, you are not as active. Your activity level affects your blood sugar. Your blood glucose is lower at night because you have been active all day.

If you're taking medication (oral or insulin injection), you'll want to talk to your doctor about possibly making an adjustment for your nightime dosage. Your doctor DEFINITELY needs to know about this.
