Apart from all the good advice already given above, it would also be a good idea to have other health parameters checked. There are many things that can interfere with normal metabolism and result in elevated glucose. You could have a closer look at mineral balances, thyroid & cortisol in your next blood work.

And, if you take vitamins/supplements/medicines without food, test them just the way you would test a meal. Then, periodically, retest. I recently found I was taking a bedtime supplement that had no effect on BG at first but caused a gradual rise over time.

Patdart, we are uniquely identical. I find it is best to avoid carb foods until lunch / dinner ... and my FBG the next morning pays for late night snacks big time!

You state no bread or rice. You do know that Pasta, potatos, and any flour products are just as full of carbs as bread and rice. The only flour that I eat (period) is a lite flour coating on fried foods. Lots of products have flour, like most cereals. Also corn meal is high. Also, most sugar free products have some carbs in them. As stated, eat to your meter.

Not yet formally diagnosed or prescribed anything, switched to very low carb (pretty much no bread / rice, possibly close to about 50g per day or less) for the last 3 weeks. Still my FBG is high, runs between 102 - 108. I never got below 94 any time of day. Most in between meal readings 110. I have avoided spikes (well, not eating carbs anyway), max spikes 126 one hour after meal, most measurements around 115.

I use a ReliOn meter for now.

Just wondering if my FBG will improve over time if I stick to low carb? I am happy that I don't get spikes, but it is almost like my baseline itself is 20 points higher than normal people.
I'm using the same meter and I'm starting to question it's accuracy. I've been dedicated to LCHF for over 7 months now and since I started using the Relion my FBG and throughout the day numbers have never been higher.

I had a lab A1c first of this month @ 5.8 with a FBG @96. I started using the Relion shortly after that as I was doubting the lows my True2go meter was delivering. 2 1/2 weeks with the Relion, the lowest FGL was 101 and highest 122, as expected the average is 111.

This meter is consistently over 20 points and up to over 40 higher than my previous. It's becoming difficult and discouraging trying to manage something when the tools you are using to measure results appear flawed.

Nick, have you thought about testing a non-diabetic family member with both meters for a few days?

Good idea, I'll try it.

I also thought I'd break my LCHF for a meal and do a PP test to see where my numbers lie.
