Like "That does not mean it is NOT a liver dump, lisa. In fact that it is the fasting reading of the day strongly suggests that it may well be. Your body has been without food for about 8 to12 hrs. I had problems with that earlier in my life with diabetes, and I asked my Primary Dr at the time what was happening. He suggested I take my BG reading just before retiring for the night. If it was below 130 he suggested I eat something with protein in it and also have it with a complex carbodydrate. I followed his suggestion and I no longer have that problem of high readings upon arising."
