i have bm2 for about 5 years now it took me about 6 months to get it under control in that time only hit 200's like 2 times. sugers at bedtime are usually between 130 to 155 i really thought i had this all under controlfor the last 4 years or so. last nite right out of the blue i check my sugars at my normal time of 9 pm an i about fell over it was at 473 i thought it was a meter error so i checked it again and it was 465. i dont no why this happened as i said i have had this under control for like 4 years n never had a reading this high before i havent drunk anything or eaten anything i acked my doc today what would cause this to spike so high but he had no idea. anyone have any ideas on why this whould happen? BTW when i did my morning check it was 143

Try five small meals a day and don't eat after 7pm. No white foods! Did you workout today any?

Were you under more than normal stress, were you in pain, do you have a cold or infection. All of these things can affect your numbers.

Mine spikes when I think I am handling things just fine but I'm really not because it's in the back of my mind & really working on me(It's kind of hard to explain.) Other times it's just stress from every day living & it will be up in the evening but by the next morning it will be down to my average morning sugars.
