My doctor said everybody has at least the beginnings of cataracts if you live long enough. He blames most things on "aging". I'm not an expert, but I've never heard of diabetes being the cause.

111 pre-breakfast. 113 1hr pp. 112 2hr pp

Breakfast was fatty meat, LC bread and about 1/3 cup butternut squash( which I thought might raise BG, but apparently not - yeah!)

I said on this site maybe somewhere else on this site I took three fasting tests in a row one after the other and got vastly different results. My strips match my meter. So which one counts. Try doing it yourself and see if you get way different readings. Mine were roughly 191 which made me double check and I he next fasting test was 153 and then I did a third and it was 171 numbers may be off a little as I dont recall exactly. Someone said average them out. Point being you cannot count on the first reading at all. I have the one touch meter. Test for yourself. Iím only going by the A1C results from Labcorp.

But which reading is correct
Pic any of the three. The fact that the readings are so far off you don’t know what’s right. People may be running their lives around the first reading and that reading may be waaay off the mark. It does not make sense. Your explanation may be correct but if it’s varies greatly which reading is right????

All of them. Blood varies in its concentration of glucose in any given spot in the bloodstream.

For peace of mind, don't do multiple tests. But if you do, the best interpretation would be to take an average. That would be consistent with the A1C test, which is an average.
