Well I was bored again and playing on the internet. Came across some info on Dawn phenomenon and the new thing, Somogyi effect. I think it's the fancy name for liver dump!!!! LOL It's when you have too much insulin and your body dumps glucose!!!
OK, so here it is. Dawn phenomenon or Somogyi effect. How can you tell the difference?
The Somogyi effect can occur any time you or your child has extra insulin in the body. To sort out whether an early morning high blood sugar level is caused by the dawn phenomenon or Somogyi effect, check blood sugar levels around 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. for several nights.
* If the blood sugar level is low at 2 a.m. to 3 a.m., suspect the Somogyi effect.
* If the blood sugar level is normal or high at 2 a.m. to 3 a.m., it's likely the dawn phenomenon.
Just thought I would pass this on. After all I am easily entertained. (OMG I spell that last word right) LOL
