Blood Sugar Question
I'm not Diabetic, but in the last few years, I had a couple of general bloodworks that showed a high glucose (104) after about a 6-8 hour fast (overnight). On three other tests, I scored in the 90s or 80s. This is when I was eating really poorly and not watching my diet at all.
So, I'm recently on a health kick and eating well and decided to buy a glucose meter and watch my blood sugar. By the way, I'm ideal body weight and have no diagnosed medical problems.
Because of my healthier diet, I've been tracking my blood sugar and usually in the mornings it's in the 80s, and two hours after a meal, it's back down in the 80s, maybe still 90s, or maybe just peeking over 100 depending on what kind of meal I had. So, I've been pretty happy that my glucose seems to be in the normal range.
But I've noticed a couple times that right before dinner (about 5:30 or 6:00) I'll bottom out and have a glucose reading of low 70s, or even high 60s. This is disturbing to me. This is even with a small 3:00 snack. I can't understand why my glucose would drop like this in the span of 3 hours when I can go all night and it only drops to the 80s.
Can anyone shed any light?
