    @SWUSA Thank you so much. That makes better sense. I tested at 183 (10.1) this morning. And I'm kinda hazy as to where I need to be. My endo said she wants my fasting in the low 100 to high 90. But she was vague in explaining it.

    @L4ne.Willi4mson they say fasting levels should be under 100, 5.5 but as long as your numbers are creeping down I wouldnt be too worried. My HbA1c has been in the non diabetic range for over a year now but my FBG still isnt under 100. It is usualy the last number to come down.
