Blood sugar levels are generally high in the morning. But if you are a diabetic your blood sugar levels can go significantly high. This condition usually happens before breakfast. A diabetes patient has to constantly monitor blood sugar levels to avoid major fluctuations. High blood sugar levels can make the condition worse for a diabetic. People who are not suffering from diabetes may experience high blood sugar levels in the morning due to hormonal changes. But in diabetics, the body does not respond to insulin properly which results in fasting blood sugar levels. This condition is called the dawn phenomenon. The effect of this phenomenon can vary from person to person.
