Health Tip: Coping With the 'Dawn Phenomenon'

(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.
