New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Reasons for High Blood Sugars in the Morning?
so let’s talk about the four reasons why your blood sugars might go up in the morning when you wake up alright so this is called the dawn phenomenon and this could happen if you’re a type 1 diabetic type 2 diabetic or you have insulin resistance really bad and you’re like a pre-diabetic ok so the first reason would be your you have a spike in cortisol normally what happens between 12:00 and 3:00 a.m. okay you have a higher insulin sensitivity in your liver so your blood sugars usually are going to be a lot better but in the early morning this can change especially if there’s higher cortisol cortisol mobilizes glucose for action for stress okay and cortisol Peaks out at 8 o’clock in the morning now it could be like 6 o’clock so between 6 & 8 maybe even 9 o’clock in the morning so you have this higher spike of cortisol if you look at the circadian wave of cortisol so cortisol by itself if it’s overly active can just mobilize more glucose from your liver and or from your muscles or actually from protein okay or even from fat as well so it can just kind of raise the blood sugar from a spike in cortisol so that’s one reason why you might have high blood sugar okay second reason let’s say you’re diabetic type 1 okay what happens you’re on insulin your insulin dependent and so if you don’t take enough insulin your blood sugar can go up that way but usually there’s something going on the liver where there’s a hormone called growth hormone that is spiking and that can mobilise some of the sugar and that’s the reason type 1 might have high sugar so there’s a more of a liver issue and I highly recommend those people do intermittent fasting and healthy keto to improve the situation and also decrease the need for insulin they’re still going to need to take insulin but maybe not as much okay number three diabetes type 2 in this situation the liver is making glucose okay it’s called gluconeogenesis and it can even produce the glucose from the fat or protein but actually it’s making too much sugar and it’s gonna start raising the sugar right here now one reason that this could happen it is a spike in cortisol now cortisol should normally inhibit insulin okay short term long term high levels of cortisol it can actually raise insulin so short term effect it can spike your blood sugars because we need this glucose for energy yet it’s going to inhibit insulin to some degree you’re not going to have this spike with insulin as much if it’s a cortisol related effect if you have a spike in insulin it’s going to end up with low blood sugar okay so we have this mobilization of sugar whether it’s happening in the liver from certain reason or cortisol and then we have this high level of sugar but we don’t have the pushing down and that sugar because the insulin is not working but if you’re a type 2 diabetic over a period of time you’re going to lose the ability to produce insulin eventually and that’s going to come down and then the sugars are going to come up and that’s probably what’s happening in this situation we just don’t have enough insulin for it to work compounded you have insulin resistance and then you your body’s is not able to regulate this properly now glucagon is another hormone and the pancreas that can also spike the blood sugar because it mobilizes the sugar from like the muscle or the fat because it’s the fat burning hormone and then also epinephrine which is the fat burning hormone that can also mobilize glucose just to raise the glucose so it really has to do with how well insulin is working how much insulin resistance you have because obviously at this point you just have too much sugar and there’s just nothing pushing it down there is danger in this high sugar situation but if you’re doing keto and I F and you’re getting this phenomena realize you just need to give it more time for it to work and I’m gonna cover that in the next slide but don’t be alarmed it’s not a big problem but if you’re actually eating a lot of carbs and you’re having this this is a big problem because that means that you’re gonna require more medication to drive this down and it’s it’s a problem because this sugar has to go somewhere I mean think about it when you take medication what do you think that medication is doing with that sugar just miraculously making it disappear no it’s cramming it into other parts of the Behati it’s trying to hide it it’s hoarding it it’s getting out of the blood but it’s putting in other places that it shouldn’t be another reason for this is that you ate too many carbs the night before okay and that’s very common so what do you do about this right here real simple number one give it time get on keto healthy keto if’ give it time eventually you’re gonna you’re gonna heal insulin resistance it may take a number of months and you’re gonna find that problem is going to be better and better and better to handle this excess sugar in the blood just exercise it off that’ll burn it up and then it’ll get it out of the blood that’s one way to get rid of it number three avoid carbs tonight before it’s a no-brainer and number four outside of vinegar the night before ok not too much dilute it with water but that will also stabilize the blood sugars alright thanks for watching so if you want to get notified with all my content click the notification bell next to

In this video, Dr. Berg talks about the 4 reasons why the blood sugars are high in the morning. This condition is called the dawn phenomenon, it can happen if you are type 1 or type 2 diabetes, or if you have insulin resistance.
1. Spike Cortisol – Cortisol mobilizes glucose for action and stress, it peaks during 8 in the morning. Normally between 12 to 3 am, you have higher insulin sensitivity in the liver so the blood sugar works a lot better.
2. Diabetes 1 – There’s a growth hormone spike that can mobilize the blood sugar.
3. Diabetes 2 – The liver is making glucose called gluconeogenesis. If you are type 2 diabetic for a long period of time, you are going to lose the ability to produce insulin eventually.
Glucagon and Epinephrine – another hormone in the pancreas that can spike the blood sugar.
4. Consuming a lot of carbs the night before.
What to Do?
• Give it a time – Do the healthy ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting
• Avoid carbs – especially the night before
• ACV – night before
