    I guess 2-3 hours would be considered a fast. Mines 88.

    Real blood work recommends 8 hours as a fast. 2-3 hours isn't long enough. It takes longer than that to get a potato out of your system. Using my buddy's blood glucose monitor, I was at 79. I had actual blood work done last Wednesday, so I'm waiting on my labs to see my score with a real test.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    8+ hours is considered a fasted blood glucose test. I have about 3 glucometers at home and they all register mine at around 110. I'm insulin resistant so that makes sense. It's also been 3 months since I have last tested.

    Haven't tested in a while but my morning fasting glucose (~10 hours fasted I guess) was routinely in the 90s, rarely in the 80s and once or twice was in the low 100s. Post-prandial was also in the 90s or 80s (rarely 70s). Pretty flat, which I guess is a good thing. I've tested while eating both high and low carb and didn't see any difference.

    I've only tested once, but it was around 40... that was pre-paleo though!
    BUT, I'm gonna borrow my grandmother's glucometer (it was for my granddad, but he passed away and she still has the apparatus), so I'm gonna test my glucose throughout the day!

    I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.

    Below 40 is not good.

    Mine is usually between 70-90. I test with my DHs glucometer once in awhile just out of curiousity. I have found that it is higher on mornings when I have wild rice, sweet potato, or a fruit/ primal friendly dessert the night before.
