The Dawn Phenomenon refers to high morning blood sugar readings, usually before sunrise between 3am-8am.

High Morning Blood Sugar Dawn PhenomenonThe dawn phenomenon is caused by hormonal interactions, not low blood sugar.

(Another possible cause of high morning blood sugar or high glucose levels is what scientists call the “somogyi effect”.)

Scientists generally agree that the Dawn Phenomenon is caused by counter regulatory hormones that are produced during sleep, such as cortisol, which can disrupt the effectiveness of insulin.

The temporary insulin resistance due to hormonal interference then leads to high morning blood sugar.

Keeping blood sugar stable throughout the night can help to prevent the dawn phenomenon.

The Dawn Phenomenon vs. The Somogyi Effect

The only way to tell the difference between the “dawn phenomenon” and the “somogyi effect” is to take a blood sugar reading at about 3am during the night.

If blood sugar is high throughout the night – you are probably experiencing the dawn phenomenon.

If blood sugar falls too low during the night, and then goes high in the morning – you are probably experiencing “rebound hyperglycemia” (the Somogyi effect.)

Extend Nutrition Products help you sleep safely through the night, keeping blood sugar stable.

Dr. Kaufman invented these products specifically to help people with diabetes manage blood sugar overnight.

Each snack is designed to help keep blood sugar stable in a healthy range - so you can avoid both low glucose and high glucose.

Dr. Kaufman explains how the formula works in her book, “Raw cornstarch serves as a reservoir of glucose in the intestinal tract because it’s digested very slowly, over a period of six to eight hours. That’s just the right amount of time to maintain a steady supply of glucose in the bloodstream through the night.”

(Kaufman, Francine R. MD. Diabesity. Bantam Books, 2006. page 87).

Prevent High morning Blood SugarThe products have been thoroughly studied, and the results of multiple clinical studies have confirmed Dr. Kaufman’s formula.

Our findings confirmed the results of the pilot study: ingesting a small amount of uncooked cornstarch as part of the evening snack reduced by a factor of three the amount of hypoglycemia at midnight and in the morning, without increasing hyperglycemia.” (Kaufman, page 91).
