Health Tip: Coping With the 'Dawn Phenomenon'
If you have diabetes, here's what to do
(HealthDay News) -- The "dawn phenomenon" is a natural surge in hormones in the morning that affects everyone.
For people with diabetes, a corresponding rise in blood glucose could be dangerous.
The American Diabetes Association suggests:
- Eat your dinner earlier in the evening.
- After dinner, go for a walk or engage in another physical activity.
- If your fasting glucose is still high after taking these steps, see your doctor.
