    Hi pb23 and welcome to the forums.
    Have you been diagnosed as a diabetic?

    Hello @pb23 ,

    Welcome to out little corner of the web. @urbanracer posed a good question. Have you been diagnosed, and if so, what type? Are you on any medication, following any diet? Because yeah, 10.3 is a bit on the high side, and if remaining high for long it might be damaging.... https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/blog-entry/the-nutritional-thingy.2330/ might help some, if you're a T2.

    Hello @pb23
    Afraid we need a little more information before we can offer anything useful.
    What type of diabetes do you have ? What was your lunch and more importantly what was your glucose level before lunch ?

    ...I think you already know the sugary stuff should be nixed, right? You did improve your fasting numbers significantly, so... Why ruin it? ;)
