"Yes" to everything, I'm pretty sure. My suggestion is to take it one time only. Stress can also make the blood sugar rise! I like your change of name.
Thank you both.
#1-Lanie, then a reading 0f 96 and then 101 (after the first reading of 88) was okay. Then the 96 and 101 were not "too high?" #2- I know I am always looking for a reading in the 80s!
Last night (this morning) I got up around 2 AM to go to bathroom and even had one of those small yogurt cups (Dannon Sugar/Carb control) and then at about 9AM I did the fasting test and got the first reading of 88. So, apparently, the yogurt cup did not make that first fasting reading go "way" up?
(As I've said before, I am a nervous person, especially in my later years; so these fasting readings do get me more worked-up.)
