Thanks for asking dLife.
I think that you might have figured out the potential contributing factors to the recent change in blood glucose pattern.
The time of day you exercise may not be as important as the intensity and duration. Are you exercising at lower intensity and/or for shorter duration? In order to get ready for work or other activities, one may devote less time to a morning exercise workout.
Perhaps the nutrisystem meals contain more carbohydrates than your original meal plan. Compare the carbohydrate content of the two different meal plans. You might have been eating additional carbohydrates..
The dose and types of diabetes medicines are routinely modified to meet changing needs. Pancreas’s ability to secrete insulin may lessen over time. The regular dosage could no longer be enough.
Extra weight decreases the body’s sensitivity to insulin (or increases insulin resistance). Losing the extra weight reduces enables the body to better respond to insulin..
Talk with your doctor about your concerns. Perhaps it is time to review and modify your diabetes treatment plan.
