    Hello All,

    Hope you are all well and fitting fit. :D

    I have seen the thread in fasting blood glucose, but was wondering what they are for only Type 2's.

    Mine are between 4.5 and 6.0 depending on what I have eaten / drunk the night before.

    Cheers

    My morning readings are the only readings I have a problem with, they are usually between 6.8 and 7.3, and I just can't get them any lower, the rest of the day Im in the 5s - 6s before and after meals. I'm on no medication at present

    I am Type 2 and my morning fasting readings are usually between 5 and 6.9. I used to get 4s as well but not for several months now. For more details see the other morning thread.

    Fasting was 8.2 (so the soup I had last night is obviously a no-no from now on).

    7.2 this morning, 12 hours after eating. I never had my bed time glass of red wine last night so I'll blame that.

    My last hba1c was 6.1 on a 'normal' carby diet occassional chips and unhealthy white bread. :D

    Fasting: 5.5 this morning, around 9 hours after dinner
    This can vary between 4.8 to & 6.9 or even higher, this depends on what I eat the previous night.
    I have been trying very hard to control with diet.
