Why does my Blood sugar go up as soon as I get up in the morning?

I'm a Type 2 Diabetic Hyperglycemia on oral meds only A1C 7.3 ok up to now I alway get up in the morning take a shower then test my sugar and eat but the other day I tested first thing when I got up the reading was ok but then after a hour (this is before eating anything at all or taking any meds), I tested again it went up like 30 points.

I try this again the next day the same thing then yesterday I did the same thing but I took my morning med this time it stay the same not up or down after the hour.

I'm on Janumet 2X day and Glimpride 1x day at dinner

    What are EACH of those medications SUPPOSED to do? Make your body produce your own insulin or lower your insulin resistance or both? You should ask YOUR DOCTOR those questions and get them to answer in terms YOU understand.

    Your liver is releasing glucagon into your bloodstream in the they. Glucagon is a type of sugar, so THAT'S why your blood sugar levels go up. The oral meds DO NOT work like long or fast actting insulin does for a type 1 diabetic. Even for non-diabetics and type 1 diabetics it takes tme for insulin to work. Everyone's metabolism is unique.

    I am a type 1 diabetic for more than 63 years and counting, since I was 2 years old.

    Oral meds do NOT work like insulin.
