I have been wondering around in the discussion forum just reading some of the posts. I see where members have BG readings that are all over the map. Some state that they range from 3-400 during the course of a day and others dip down in the sub-70 range. I find in my case that if I dip below about 95 I start to get the hebe jebes and if I get below 80 I am done! I have to stop everything and get my count back up again. I am only testing once a day first thing in the morning unless I sense that I am out of balance. Testing mornings only I am generally in the 115-130 range with an occasional dip toward 100 or a bounce toward 150 with an occasional sweets induced 180. The bounces have invariably returned to my normal for my follow up BG readings. In the interest of full disclosure I was testing twice a day for the first 6 months after my diagnosis. The reality is that even those afternoon readings were in a similar range and only deviated when I failed to watch my food intake.
My question is - Do I really have T2? Are others seeing the same things that I do or am I an anomaly?
