Hi drake.  Welcome to the Diabetes Forum.  It doesn't seem like your doctor has given you a lot of information or guidance!  First of all, your blood sugar levels aren't critical but you don't want them any higher, especially the fasting.  Fasting should be under 100.  Please read the stickies above our forum for information on food.  In short, the more carbohydrates you eat, the higher your blood sugar will be.  It's not just sugar - and it's not that simple, which is why I'm surprised that your doctor said that.  Anyway, cut down on all the carbs and get into some kind of regular daily exercise.  This will help you lose weight and also control the blood sugar.  I'm sure you may have other questions.  Just ask!

Hello again!  First of all, you do not have to worry all that much with those blood sugar levels.  Your 99 after 2 1/2 hours of eating is perfectly fine!  Most doctors are looking for under 100 in fasting but it's true that some people do have elevated blood sugar in the morning.
 
Sometimes we have bring that down by changing what we eat the night before.  For example, as I said, since carbs keep the blood sugar up, then if you are eating cake or anything with sugar or a late dinner with carbs, then try to cut down on that. 
 
What time do you eat dinner?  What do you eat for dinner?
 
about your anxiety:  Sometimes being stressed out can have physical effects on the body and maybe the anxiety is affecting the blood sugar.  I don't know if this is true in your case but if you're worrying about this too much, maybe it is.  Sometimes anxiety comes from feeling that you're not in control of things in your life or you're overwhelmed for other reasons.  I hope the medication you are taking is helping with that.
 
May I ask how old you are?

Alright, in your list, the potatoes, white bread and spaghetti can raise blood sugar.  What is Greek spaghetti?

Ok.  Well, then, please know that pasta (all forms of pasta) is made from flour and that will raise blood sugar.  Sometimes we only think about 'sugar' and diabetes but that's only part of it.  Food made from flour (pasta, bread, cake, cookies, biscuits, noodles, etc.) will raise blood sugar.  So, if your dinner is spaghetti, then maybe that's why your morning fasting is higher.
 
I would suggest eating only half the spaghetti you normally eat and eating more vegetables and salad.  That would help.

Drake, if you are trying to get your morning fasting lower, then just try my suggestion about dinner, cutting down on the pasta and eating more vegetables and a small piece of protein like chicken, fish, etc. 
 
Your other blood sugar readings seem to be fine but if you want to lose weight, then cutting down on the pasta and doing regular exercise daily will help.
 
Good luck!
