Now, this is just a guess on my part and may be wide of the mark.

With insulin resistance, a symptom you may come across is what is called a Reactive Hypo. Again, using a simple analogy, think of a sticking door. You push and push but the door doesn't budge. Then you finally push it over the sticking point, and you end up flying into the room and straight out of the window.

The reactive hypo is what happens when your blood sugar jumps (for whatever reason - such as a "liver dump") and finally your pancreas manages to get the glucose moving with a huge surge of insulin - and your number looks a lot lower than it would have done a few minutes before - if you'd tested then. And even if your number didn't fall into the true "hypo" range (below 70), it sure feels like it!

This is an area where a meter (even an inaccurate one) can show us what our numbers are doing after we eat or even when we don't eat.

That's exactly the margin of error I was experiencing between the two brands of meters. I have 2 True meters and they are about the same, also have 2 Relion, a Bayer Contour and a Presto. The last 4 are all very close to each other, the True are way off.

Three of the meters belong to my wife, three to me. Often in the past we have switched, compared and done everything to try to narrow our margin of error. We have both compared our meters to our independent labs and in all cases found our Relion meters to be the most accurate. Sadly I tested several times a day with my Truetest meter for around 8 months, put faith and trust in it, only to be deceived. And yes, I still hold Walgreens accountable and won't shop there by choice.

Too bad my least favorite retailer in the world is the only one that sells the Relion. I'm betting it is available under a different name, that is a closely guarded secret, or cost prohibitive due to low sales volume.

Others results may vary.

If relion is reliable, then I am in big trouble. Today it showed 185. Sigh. I thought I had my sugar under control, instead I am spinning out of control.

I had beef with zucchini for dinner, + some peanuts.
Today I had laughing cow cheese, some canned fish in oil and sunflower seeds (a little).
I have got to figure something out about my body. Relion makes me want to cry.

What weight of peanuts? (high carb).

Laughing Cow is processed plastic. Eat real cheese instead.

What vegetables? Please quantify your portions.

Overall my reaction is that you are not eating enough, and certainly not enough fats.
