........................I've had normal results so far pretty much

4.7 fasting 12hrs
4.9 following diluted concetrate (had forgotten i drank it and was learning how to work it)...................
That all that sounds pretty normal to me! The fasting test really tells you very little because a diabetic could get a result like that.

However, your 4.9 following drinking a sugary drink is fairly indicative that you don't have a problem. At what time after drinking the concentrate did you test?

If you want to reassure yourself further try drinking some a sugary drink such as regular Coca Cola or Lucozade or something similar then test after about one hour.

i did read a post on another forum saying that even diabetics can get normal numbers occasionally thoe
Yes - they do - especially fasting readings! However, it's hard to miss if you test approximately one hour after eating a meal with a lot of sugar or carbohydrate in it - e.g. a large bowl of cereal with or without added sugar.

My numbers are normal almost all of the time but only because I have changed my diet to eat very little starchy carbohydrate - e.g. cereals, bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, pizza etc.

That 6.2 result still falls into non-diabetic levels. What did you eat - that is a very important aspect too?

What I meant was what food did you eat because that is what causes your blood glucose levels to go up.

For example, if you ate a beef steak or some other meat that would do hardly anything to your blood glucose levels, However, if you ate bread, cereals, potatoes, pasta, rice, pizza that would put your levels up by a large amount.

bacon grill and beans
That's a fairly healthy low-carb meal for a diabetic just so long as you didn't eat bread with it. I wouldn't have expected that to have take taken a diabetic particularly high.
