An early-morning rise in blood-glucose levels, believed to be due to a delayed response in growth-hormone release.
A rise in blood sugar levels between about 4 and 8 A.M.; caused by a decrease in insulin sensitivity, in turn related to a sleep-induced increase in secretion of growth hormone.
Early morning (usually 4 am - 6 am) rise in blood sugar. Many people experience a rise in blood sugar due to the increase in levels of hormones (such as growth hormone) in the early morning.
A sudden rise in blood glucose levels in the early morning hours. This condition sometimes occurs in people with insulin-dependent diabetes and (rarely) in people with non insulin-dependent diabetes. Unlike the Somogyi effect, it is not a result of an insulin reaction. People who have high levels of blood glucose in the mornings before eating may need to monitor their blood glucose during the night. If blood glucose levels are rising, adjustments in evening snacks or insulin dosages may be recommended.
