1. Counter regulatory hormones like Cortisol rise , raising sugar levels internally.

2. Hepatogluconeogenesis - Liver also produces sugar to keep the internal sugar in check.

3. Sugar is also reabsorbed from Kidneys , thus keeping sugar levels changing .

This is common as we have many other counter regulatory hormones such as cortisol they rise in morning hours with peak around 8 to 10 pm. They can mount blood glucose rise so this variation can be seen even without having anything
