I am just starting taking my blood with a kit...sticking my fingers and checking a meter. My range does not seem to be unusual. The lowest I have seen was 80...and I was feeling very sleepy then. I had a high reading of 154 but that was probably taken too soon after eating. Do you use and rely on a blood testing kit. Do you think its a useful tool? I am still not 100% certain that I am diabetic...it could be hypo-glycemic could be pre-diabetic...or could be some type of food allergy that is putting me into a powerful sleep state after eating carbs (gluten allergy?) I dont know yet. I am yet to take more tests.
Thanks for the great welcome Linzie -- and I love your photos. And I want an omnipod for my son! But they aren't available on national health yet here in the uk...hard enough to pursue just getting him a pump. Sigh. Thanks again. Best.
