I am experiencing very high morning glucose numbers. I have been diabetic for 8 years and over the last several months my numbers have gotten worse and my A1C is up. Looking for suggestions or your experience on how to get better control. I take my meds and insulin, I have my first appointment with an Endocronoligist soon and am not sure what to expect.

You may be having liver dump in wee hours of the morning as the last time u ate was dinner. Try having a small snack like celery n peanut butter or peanut butter n a couple slices of apple or a low carb Greek yogurt before bed

I see you are T 2. Good you are going to the Endo. I pray you will get some more information from him/her. There is an article "Getting the most out of your [Endochriologist] appointment" ~

I'd like to add to that some things I have been doing for a number of years. Whenever I have a question for the Dr (within the field of their expertise, of course) I type it into a word processing document. The day prior to the appt. I print out 2 copies of the questions. I then give the nurse who does my vitals one of the copies and ask it be inserted into my medical file where Dr will be able to see it as Dr looks it over. That way Dr will be alerted that I have questions and even may take the time to research a bit if needed prior to the exam. I retain the other printout and write notes on mine to refresh my memory later. I have had positive feedback from the Drs about doing this.

A couple of things would be nice to know before any of us gives our 2 cents worth here. You mention high morning (fasting?) numbers.

You say you are taking insulin and meds. What is the insulin, and how much do you inject, and on what schedule? What is/are the meds you are taking. Again, what is the amount(s) and on what schedule?

Another question, how many carbs are you eating in a day, of what kind (simple or complex ~ .

That info is important for anyone to be able to even guess as to what is going on with your diabetes.

God's best to you

James, great idea for my Dr visit. I take metformin, glipizide, Apidra on a sling scale at mealtime, Lantus 45 units 2x, a day. I watch my diet , limit carbs . I have lost 130 lbs over the last 2 years. Weight watchers has been a plus. I will check out the article too.
