Going crazy over these readings!!!!!
I have not been diagnosed with anything as of yet. I am 49 yrs old, heathly weight though I could lose a few pounds, but I am not heavy. My father had age-onset II and died at 81. Since he was diabetic, I have started to monitor my blood sugar and have to admit, I have become a little obsessive about it to the point that it stresses me out.
My numbers have been all over the place lately. I will go two or three days were it's completely normal: 85 - 99 fasting and other days where it's elevated. Yesterday I was 99 fasting, 95 2 hours after lunch and then had a very stressful afternoon and this morning I was 115! I ate two eggs for breakfast and tested at two hours and was at 116! Why is it going up? Now I have been worried about it all morning but I thought for sure it would go down. I had nothing "carby" for breakfast, just the eggs and some green tea with no sugar. Am I just worrying myself sick for no reason? I have been to the doctor and fasting at the lab was 101 (again,,I stressed) and he didn't seem the least bit concerned. HELP!

No 2 tests/days are ever the same, even for a non-d. The 115 is fine so don't worry and don't stress. It is possible that due to the absence of carbs, your liver released some glucose.

Re: Going crazy over these readings!!!!!
Thank you Cora. You talked me off the ledge this morning. I almost had a full-blown anxiety attack over this. I just don't understand all of this yet, and my doctor isn't concerned to the point where he feels I need to be concerned.
