This is known as the dawn phenomenon. Your blood sugar is high in the morning before you eat for various reasons. Avoid high carb snacks before bedtime. You may want to talk to you DR about this. They may adjust doses and times of medication.

I have this. I eat no carb snack before bed and i have half the carbs for breakfast then lunch or dinner. It works over time. My blood sugar used to be 130 in the morning and now it is 105 to 110.

I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Unless you eat exactly the same thing everyday, and do exactly the same activity everyday, your reading will vary a bit ~ and those readings are pretty much the same thng as far as I am concerned.

Even if/when you eat the same breakfast and lunch each day (like I do)
and don't vary your routine, you can get widely variant readings…not to be discouraging,,,it just happens. Insulin dependent diabetics like me have an easier fix for this (via Bolus) than those on oral meds…but it is still frustrating. Like Shakespeare said "What a piece of work is man…"
