Yes, CO took me a while to figure out. In the US (United States, LOL), it's the postal abbreviation for the state of Colorado!

The tests we take before meals are not considered fastings, unless there has been eight or more hours since eating anything. There is no need to label them 'morning' or 'premeal' or anything else. Unless you've gone over eight hours without eating, the reading is NOT a fasting reading because you haven't been fasting.

As well as what Shanny said; you don't want to confuse people by making up acronyms that are already acronyms. The acronym MFG is commonly used as an abbreviation for Manufacturer/Manufacturing.
