Yes, missing an evening snack could be the difference. It all depends on the medication/diet program that you have been given by your doctor or Certified Diabetes Educator.

By skipping your evening snack, your blood sugar level may have dropped too low during the night. Your liver then converts glycogen to glucose and places the glucose in the blood for usage. However, this process is not very "exact" regarding the amount of glucose that is dumped into your blood.....thus a person can then experience elevated blood sugar levels with the morning testing.

Not knowing your medical history, it is impossible for this site and our experts to know for sure what is happening and why with your blood sugar readings. I would suggest you call your doctor or Certified Diabetes Educator for further clarification on your exact medication and food plan.

I have been doing this program for three weeks and at first my sugar started to come down.
I was at a fasting sugar of 11-12 and went down to a 9. yesterday I missed my evening snack and this morning I was back to 11.9. Could missing one snack really make such a difference?
