Just checked my numbered and for the first time my meter registered high. Not a number. Hoping if I do a shot and drink water I will feel better. I think maybe a rebound from a low of 49 at 6pm

My machine reads I'm high a lot. We'll not 'a lot' but certainly more than most people. I don't stress. Just check keytones and see how you go from there :) Hope your ok!!

****are you using insulin? You stated some VERY low numbers (49) which is not healthy either. I think you need to see your doctor right away!

Highs and lows are both dangerous. Drink water and take a bolus. Recheck every hour - two, until you are back at a normal range

**** did you eat after your low of 49? If so, did you bolus?

How did you recover from your low ? And how many carbs did you consume ?

When your meter says high that means your blood sugar is over 600! Too high to handle yourself! Contact your doc when you're that high
