    Anybody care to comment on this fandanglement?
    So, on the same hand, three readings with the first two taken on the same finger and the last one on a different finger. I know which one I’m taking! I believe 5.4 IS my lowest morning !

    And it's a 5.3 @ 8am today, from a 5.1 just before going to bed. More than happy with that.

    Fexophenadine is the only anti histamine I can take, all others make me so sleepy I am unable to function.

    Bloods 5.2 this morning.

    Today it was
    12.2 - on waking.
    18.1 - 2 hours after breakfast (1 oatabix and milk) plus weak coffee.

    Lunch has been a 2 slice sandwich of ham and cheese but didn't finish.
    17.9 - 2 hours after lunch.

    I've been told that my hb1Ac test has been high at 80 and my meds has now been reduced.
    However, the diabetes nurse from the hospital doesn't understand why and is queering this.

    Just feeling really confused.

    Hi @whyme_again if you have questions why don’t you write your own post? You’ll get more replies than here in this fasting blood sugar thread with very low chat level.
