I'm bumping this post because I definitely am having higher testing levels (quite a bit higher) now that I have my period. I'm menopausal so my periods are not that regular so this is the first time I've had it since diagnosis. I am glad I found this thread because I was worried about my numbers. So much to learn and this is the place to be. I feel a bit relieved that hormonal changes are probably a contributing factor.

I've read that blood sugars will increase during your TOM. My meter allows you to flag TOM in the health notes so there must be something to this.

According to
http://www.womenshealthmatters.ca/centre
s/diabetes/reproductive/menstruation.html

Many women notice fluctuations in blood glucose at certain times in their monthly cycle, such as an increase in blood glucose a few days prior to the beginning of their period and then a decrease once the period begins. This increase usually occurs after ovulation and before menstruation. Changes are due to two hormones, estrogen and progesterone. When these hormones are at their highest level just before your period, they affect another important hormone, insulin, which may, in turn, cause blood glucose to rise. Some women find their blood glucose rises considerably, while others do not notice a difference. In some women, blood glucose levels are lower before and during their periods. Each woman needs to discover her own pattern.

I had noticed that my blood sugar does change during the time period. Not sure if it's by that much but it still increases.

Does anyone else have a pattern that their fasting blood sugars are higher the week before and week of their menstrual cycle? My numbers jump by about 10-12 points for about a 10 days cycle then drop to my average. Just curious. Thanks!
