I got a blood sugar monitor the other day and here are my mother's test results:

On day 1 she got a overnight fasting reading of 138, however, this was after no more than 5 minutes after taking a sip of milk with some kind of sugar mixture added. I didn't think it was a long enough time or enough of the drink to effect her test results so I did it anyway, but I wasn't sure. Maybe it did.

On day 2 she got a overnight fasting reading of 109.

Day 3 I took a 2-hour post reading after she ate about 100 carbs of pizza, ice cream, and lemonade, which only came out to 115.

Then this morning she got her overnight fasting reading to 95.

So, her two hour post and todays are good, what's the deal?

Neal-
the finger tests can jump blood sugar up from the stress...that may be the case here and the later tests show some adaptation to the stress. Track things for several weeks and that will give you much more reliable information.
