Mine was up and down this week and I think it was the sugar alcohols in the food I ate before bed time.
I didn't know stress could do it though....that could also explain the rise.

Thank You! It seems better today and I've taken steps to get rid of some of the stress. I am keeping track of my numbers for the Dr. to see.

Thank you. I agree, Stress can be a killer. For the moment, I am doing better. I have to remember about it being one day at a time. That takes a lot of practice.

Stress can do it - even "good stress" like having the grandkids over. Talk to your doctor, but there is probably something you can do about it if you see it coming, particularly if you are on insulin.

You say in the afternoons... what time and how long has it been since you have eaten? Postprandial (after eating) sugars can be about 200 two hours after eating. This would be normal. If they are in the upper 200s maybe you are eating the wrong foods or combination of foods. You also said you are on insulin? It could also be that you improving health is changing your need for insulin and you are having some rebound hyperglycemia.... either way the other comments are right. You should log what you are eating and what your sugars are. You may see the problem yourself but for sure you will be well prepared to give your doctor all of the info needed to make a reasonable diagnosis and fix the problem. Its great you are being so aware... keep it up and you will get it in line... I'm sure of it!

Stress actually can trigger higher than normal blood sugars. Also, how have you been feeling lately? Being sick can cause your blood sugars to go up as well. Otherwise it's really important to keep everything recorded so that you can look at how much insulin you took, what your sugars were before and after a meal and that way if you do go to see your doctor (never a bad idea) then you can show them everything.
Hope it all works out!

Not sure but perhaps you should speak with your Dr. about this. Could be serious or not?

I'm a type 2 diabetic that has been on insulin for about 3 months. During this challenge I have noticed a vast improvement with my numbers until the last couple of days. Both days, in the afternoon, my numbers have gone from the 110-120 range to over 200. I have been eating and exercising the way I should, but I have been under more stress than normal. Could this be the cause? It comes down quickly, but it worries me.
