Re: Blood Sugar and Menstruation!
One of the most important first questions to ask is: How accurate is that meter? Don't compare it to the one in the docs office. The only way to know for sure is to take it along to the lab when you have blood drawn and test when you've had the lab draw.
Keep in mind that the industry standard is that the meter must be accurate to within 20% (plus or minus). So if your glucose is actually 100, the meter could read between 80 and 120 and still be considered acceptable. Each individual meter has it's own ideosyncracies and so you should find out how accurate that meter is. My own Freestyle Lite always reads about 6 - 7% higher than the lab value.
That said, you could be in the very early stages of developing T2, if it runs in the family. In a woman with diabetes, your menstrual cycle can affect your blood sugars. In someone without a glucose problem, it will not. If you are really serious about finding out, I would see your doc and have a lab draw done.
As an aside, I think it's really nice of you to follow the program that your Mom is on. I'm sure she appreciates it.
