Hormonal changes which occur in he body in morning tend to cause rise in blood sugar levels in morning.
For people who don't have diabetes, the increase in blood glucose is offset by increased insulin production. For people with diabetes, this can be a problem.
The liver is supposed to release small amounts of glucose when you're not eating. But in type 2 diabetes, the liver dumps more glucose than is needed into the bloodstream, especially at night. 
The reason of this dumping is presence of insulin resistance which affects how your liver processes,stores,and releases sugar specially in night.So, while your hormones are causing a natural rise in blood glucose, your liver is releasing even more sugar into your system. And because your insulin resistance prevents your muscle and fat cells from using the sugar, your blood glucose level rises in the morning.
