Q:

My highest morning blood sugar was 119 after eating out the night before, my portions were larger than usual.

A:

It is very common for one’s blood glucose to be elevated in the morning if a larger than normal meal was eaten the night before. This can be especially true if the meal was eaten late or if the meal was high in fat. It can be helpful sometimes to check your blood glucose right before bed just to see what effect the larger portion sizes had on your blood glucose level. If 119 is your highest blood glucose, then your diabetes is well controlled and there is no need to worry about an occasional spike. The goal for morning blood glucose before breakfast is less than 130, so you are well under that target.

That'd be great numbers for me. Keep up the good work. From a late bloomer to diabetes..then there's 2 meds for BP, a couple for fibro which covers depression too but it might be what's raising my sugar., and a couple for sleep, and a CPAP machine doing it's job for apnea and acid reflux with Dexilant..
