No. My evening numbers aren't too bad. Low if anything. Just the peak mid morning which is puzzling me.



That's good, you seem to have it sorted overnight.....

Is the peak mid morning after your breakfast......first thoughts of a mid morning peak is an issue with the bolus dose.....

Have considered that but as I said I do revert to normal numbers by lunch so an I crease in bolus.might be risky. Will go e it a try some day I am not at work and keep a close eye on it. Thanks.

Going back to normal by lunch, as you have pointed out, means your dosing is right......

getting the spike down as low as possible 1.5-2 hours after eating is achieved by timing.....so at a minimum, giving your insulin ten minutes before anything passes your lips.....this timing can be increased as well if the spike is still too high for your liking.....
