    Morning all. 6.3 this morning, but I had been up 15 minutes before I took it, not sure if that would make it lower or not, but well down from yesterday.

    Good morning world.

    6.7 again . It seems to be that I get mid 6's most mornings.

    Pleased with this one though as my 90 minute postprandial was 8.3 last night.

    Any reason, over indulgence?

    I don't think so. I checked my postprandial 2 hours after eating last night and it was 7.5, so your guess is as good as mine. The only thing is, I've seen my BS bouncing around all over the place since I started checking. It's been as high as 11. something and as low as 3.6 and anywhere in between despite eating a lowish carb diet. Any suggestions?

    @Gadget_man I think you will get more support/info if you start a seperate thread in the prediabetes section

    I think I'll do that after I've had my HbA1c results, then it'll be more meaningful I think than worrying about it now. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    My A1C was 40 too. This equates to an average of 6.6 over the day, lots of ups and downs!

    3.9 at 7.30am, rising to 5.3 within an hour despite not eating. Am 36 hours into a 48hr fast. Usually 5.0-6.0 normally on waking on days when I ate the night before.
