So I just got a machine after being diagnosed and tested myself for the first time yesterday and my number was 124.
Had a good breakfast a holiday party to go to and was careful with what I ate and there was a difference of about 1 point the ought out the day.
Today woke up and it was at 126, had breakfast and my 1st metaformin for the day. Then tested 2 hours later and it was 112
Tested before I ate lunch 2.5 hours later after the last test, and was only 113, had lunch and afterwards had my 2nd metaformin pill.
Had to run errands and now only able to have dinner 5 hours later and got really hungry but now I have sharp stomach pains and tested before I start eating now and it's 110.
Can my numbers be that drastic from day to day? Also the metaformin has been giving meanie stomach upset issues so I don't know if it's hunger or the metaformin giving me pain?
Can the medication act that fast in lowering my blood sugar? Also what is a good number? It can vary for different people I was reading but is there a general baseline of what it should be? On the app I have the median is 125 with a low of 70 and high of 180 as the safe zone it loks like?
Sorry for all the questions I need to enroll in a diabetes class and find an educator as well
