The Dawn Effect, sometimes also called the Dawn Phenomenon (DP) was first described about 30 years ago.
Now, what happens in the situation where you have T2D, or high insulin resistance? Around 4 am, counter regulatory hormones surge and insulin is also released to counter this.

By the time the patient awakens, the sugar is elevated without a good explanation.
The high blood sugar occurs in reaction to the preceding low.
These normal circadian hormonal increases prepare our bodies for the day ahead.
