You're wise to keep tabs on your blood sugar levels if you've seen that your lab results have been higher than normal in the past. Keep in mind that charts in doctors' offices use the ADA guidelines (and the charts are provided either by the ADA or a pharmaceutical company) and those guidelines for diabetics are not the same as for non-diabetics. We should always strive to keep our blood sugar to what real normal levels are.
Like blood pressure, our blood sugar responds to the fight or flight phenomena. Both will rise to unhealthy levels because of stress, illness, pain and anxiety so it can be tricky to get a handle on keeping ourselves to normal levels.
Yesterday I had to fast from 7:30 to 4:00 with only sips of water allowed and my blood sugar was 100 at 5:00 afterward. I think that a non-diabetic's blood sugar would have been lower but I was fine with the 100 and glad it wasn't higher. I wasn't allowed to take meformin yesterday either so that was just my body metabolizing the tiny breakfast I had.
