    Hi,   I have noticed something when taking my glucose that I would like to ask you about.  I have Type 2 and is basically controlled well with diet and exercise.  I rarely have to take medication (metformin).  However, sometimes when I wake in the mornings after fasting my blood glucose is in the 80-90's and then for some reason without eating or drinking anything (except 1-2 cups black coffee - no sugar or artificial sweetener) I take my glucose a couple of hours later and it has actually risen to 110-120's.   Shouldn't it remain the same are actually go down given these circumstances?   Thank you in advance for your time and effort in this matter.   Richard
