anyone else having high numbers recently?

hey all, just kinda curious if its me or something BS numbers have been well controlled the last few weeks and then all of a sudden they have been elevated the last few days. A few have been over my 120 goal 2 hrs after meals but most between 90-110's...i'm not sure if its stress (my nana passed away this week), the awful heat, or just a fluke with my hormone levels. I have definitely had more BH contractions this week as well. Could the two be related? I'm not sure. Just wanted to get some feedback :) TY!

  • It could definitely be related to stress and heat. I found that the heat has definitely made my readings higher.

     I'm so sorry about your Nana.

  • It could be any number of things. I've read that stress can cause the numbers to creep up, as well as heat/dehydration. I know we all hate to hear this, but try drinking more water and stay as cool as possible.

    I would talk to your doctor at your next visit. Or use the protocol they laid out- mine said if I have three days in a row with high numbers, to call them.
