Plan ahead and be prepared for high fasting results

If you have high fasting results, you may have:

  1. Missed your evening dose of insulin
    Plan: Keep your insulin kit by your bedside and post reminder notes

  2. Used a new insulin or new dosage or your insulin needs to be adjusted
    Plan: Self-monitor before injecting. Follow up the next morning with a fasting blood glucose test.

  3. Experienced Dawn phenomenon or rebound hyperglycemia. Sometimes the liver releases too much glucose in the early morning hours when your blood glucose is at its lowest or when low blood glucose occurs in the middle of the night. Your doctor may need to adjust your insulinor other medications.
    Plan: If you wake up sweating and get a high result, add a 2 a.m. self-monitoring blood glucose test to help your doctor determine if you need an insulin adjustment.

If you have high blood glucose on other occasions:

  • Illness or stress
    Plan: Take care of health and see a doctor.
  • Eaten too much
    Plan: Self-monitor and adjust meal plans.
