Eat beets and other foods that raise nitric oxide. Get sunshine (which does the same). If you're in a northern state I'd suggest a sunbed for the winter months.

Thyroid levels should be tested and don't take "normal" for an answer. Ask for the specific levels because the lab norms are often too high. A TSH level over 2.0 requires further testing. Hypothyroidism mimics PCOS.

No, it isn't unusual to have your fasting BG be the highest, especially when eating low-carb. Research "dawn phenomenon;" your liver prepares you for waking and can cause a spike.
