    It's a wonder because I had a bad Saturday night, out partying for a friends birthday. Took 2 days for bg to come down. Lesson learnt :shock:

    Re: Type 2's : What was your fasting blood glucose in a morn

    Mine was 7.2 having been 7.4 at the weekend. I am finding this weird as for 2 months I have seen my twice weekly FG readings at sub 6.0.

    I am wondering whether this was because I had late nights and early 'ish mornings both times in combination with late night eating = so less than 7 hours between last eating and FG test plus tired body. Whereas the 2 months of sub 6.0 readings were all on a good 11-12 hours of fast.

    Anyone have any views on what effectively constitutes a FG time period?

    Also anyone have any suggestions on why this week I am higher by a good 15-20% over the FG average of the last two months?

    Any opinions on either/ both questions much appreciated.

    12.1 - ah well!

    actually I was a bit late getting up this morning, which may have increased it slightly.
