Your numbers look good maybe a bit lower. It may take another week to stablize your numbers hang in there things will be better

Thanks to all of you sensible diabetics for your input. I'll hang in there. I am 81, slender, on Zocor and am a super vitamin taker. Seems if we live long enough diabetes is one of our rewards.

Yes I have found that diet plays a very important role in your blood levels. Dont get too stressed out that also plays a very big role.

Don't panic. This is very common. Not too many people have the exact reading day after day. Diet plays a role, stress, getting used to your new meds etc. Those are not terrible readings, could be just a bit lower. That will happen soon. Til then, know you have a place for friends and information.

This is very normal. It depends on many factors: stress, what you have eaten, how late you ate, how many carbs did you have in comparison to other days. If you stay in that range all the time be thankful. Welcome aboard and keep asking those important questions.
