I have noticed that if I have an apple after dinner, usually a couple of hours before bed, my BS is higher in the morning. Anyone else have this problem?

Morning highs are the bane of my diabetes, but one thing that I find does help is to include a little fat with my night time snack. I add nuts personally, but you can choose. The other thing I am now doing is exercising after dinner instead of in the morning. That has helped me a lot too.

Makes sense. Apples are fairly high in carb and that carb is mainly sugar. If you eat the apple on its own it will raise your blood sugar which means it has further to come down than if you didn't eat it. Add that in with the hormone changes overnight it makes sense that you would be higher in the morning.
