Hi Crappieroy,
How long have you been diagnosed? Sometimes it takes a while to find a happy place.

What kind of meds are you taking? You might want to talk to your doctor about when to take them, sometimes that makes a huge difference.

Are you counting your carbs at your meals? This important information could be what is causing you to go into the 200's. Maybe you are loading a meal and that causes you to spike.

Are your high numbers after a meal? How long after do you test? Usually we peak between 1-2 hours after we eat. To get a more gradual rise in your levels, you could add more fiber or fat to your diet. Those things will help slow down the glucose dump into your blood from a simple carb.
