I have found the problem of high blood sugar at dawn is the result of a diet too high in carbohydrates.
Taking drugs complicates the whole matter. In fact having to take diabetes drugs means the diet is too high in carbohydrates. Many on this site have done a terrific job of crafting a diet for themselves
that is free of grains, starch and sugar. They usually don't need drugs. Some do not make enough insulin to cover even their low carb diet. I am old that is true in my case so I take a small amount of Lantus but no drugs. If you have to take drugs, your diet is too high in carbohydrate. It will show up as high blood sugar at dawn. With a high protein, fat and fiber diet and very low carb, no sugar starch or flour, the dawn problem should go away.
