High morning sugars are often a result of hormones your body releases overnight to keep your glucose level level. If you are eating low carb, the numbers may eventually creep down. Mine are sometimes below 100 now, but it took me a while for it. And I'm pre-D, not full-blown, so it may have been easier for me to manage.
I'd suggest you try some of the ideas here, and see how they affect your morning numbers. A little carb snack before bed does it for some people. A little protein does it for others. A glass of wine with dinner the night before seems to help some people (the liver focuses more on the alcohol than the glucose), but I wouldn't recommend that if you have problems with alcohol.
We can manage our diabetes with diet, exercise, and sometimes medication. I disagree that we can ever truly reverse it. Even with really good, really low numbers, for a long time, if I then eat a piece of cake, my BG will skyrocket just like it used to. That's not reversal. But we certainly can manage our disease. We have SO much more knowledge and so many more tools at our disposal than we had even a generation ago. And more every day.
