Question After meal reading or fasting?

Last night I ate a rich meal followed by lemon juice to which I added 3.5 table spoons of white sugar- Then I walked for about 75 minutes. When I checked my blood sugar I rejoiced to find it was 88. At 5am today I drank two cups of tea and a cup of lemon juice to which I added the same amount of white sugar (3-4 table spoons). Then I slept a while I checked my blood sugar 4 and a half hours later(9:30 am) to my dismay it was 106- My question is: To what category does my later test belong ? Can I consider it a fasting test or an after meal one and what does the two readings mean?

Re: After meal reading or fasting?

Your test was a "random" one. Post prandial is 2 hours after eating and fasting requires at least 8 hours of fasting.

Your sugars are quite good considering how much pure glucose you take. You might want to test 2 hours post and see how you are doing.

Re: After meal reading or fasting?

Thank you very much Cora - ( At 1:10 am today) I conducted the test two hours after the beginning of a meal which was full of carbs but refrained from taking any sugar or exercise- The result was alarming it was 133 ( This is the highest reading I have so far) . By the way I use ACCU CHEK PERFORMA -- Please Cora comment on this last reading and I am waiting for your advice soon!

Re: After meal reading or fasting?

Try not to worry too much. Many non diabetics don't go above 120 or 125, but to be considered "in control" you should be less than 140. So while this may be a higher number for you, it is still ok.
