    How can blood sugar go up without eating?

    I am newly diagnosed as a type 2 Diabetic. I am very confused though.
    I check my blood sugar when I wake up and it's around 6.8, then a couple hours later (without eating or drinking anything), it goes a bit higher.
    Why does that happen? How does that happen?
    I've been testing my sugar myself at home after my A1c at my latest blood test at the doctor's was 6.7%. I was just told I have diabetes and given Metformin, which I haven't taken yet because I am trying diet.

Many of us find if we eat a little something upon waking we can ward it off. I eat a cheese stick with my morning coffee which is in my hand within 10 min of waking Many of us find also the lower carb we eat after awhile it backs off as we have depleted the sugar from our liver so nothing to dump.
