Has anyone ever reported a false low blood sugar reading? I know that can happen if you don't get enough blood on the strip, but the readings seem to be sound. I ate some Cheerios with milk before I went to bed (it's a no-no I know! :)) but I'm glad I did. I had a fitful sleep, woke up soooo early and checked my sugar. 77. Now I know that's not "LOW" on the grand scheme of things, but it is low for me, esp given my snack before I went to bed.

ANYWAY…lol Is it possible to have false lows?

I know that when I was first getting used to better numbers I would start to notice a change anything below 100. I was so used to being 200, so that was low for me then. Now it's fine and my body has adjusted to having lower numbers.
