Considerably less than 1/2 of 1% of my tests are over 140. 3% are between 60 and 69.

Anything over 150 is almost always due to infusion set or pump failure. That happens a few times a year.

I'm very strict with myself.

I am also using "One Touch Ultra mini" meter. Initially my first meter was not giving correct result ( with in same 30 sec, with same blood drop, it was giving different result ( diff in 20-25 mg/dl). Then I returned it and took another "One Touch Ultra mini". It seems to be giving almost same number in within same time and also in my range

In the US, blood sugar is measured as mg/dl (milligrams per decilitre). Most of the rest of the world uses SI units, which are mmol/L (millimoles per litre). A rough way of converting is to divide the mg/dl values by 18 (it's actually about 18.22).

Hi,

I am new to this forum. I did a random blood glucose test at home using myAccu-Check active and the result was 170. I tested it one hour after dinner.

Meanwhile I am feeling hungry all the time. What does this signify?

waiting eagerly for a response.

Thanks...

Hi, Samantray 1, it simply means you are eating too many carbs. A low carb diet will both drop the BG after meals and it is a fact that carbs 'call for more carbs' as I think of it. Carbs make us hungry. Also, eating healthy saturated fats give you a sense of being full and satisfied.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the reply!

When I did a Fasting BG Test this morning it came out to be 102. Is there any reason to worry?

I am 31 years old.

Thanks
