    Default Slightly high blood sugar level

    I had an appointment with my Doctor this afternoon and my blood sugar level read 6.8 and he wants it under 6. I have to go back and see him in a fortnight. Has this happen to you? What can I do for it to come back down? Its really worrying me.

    Mine was boarder line high with my second bub. I had to go back for a second test also.
    I just cut out as much sugar as realistic over the next two weeks (that is, sugar in coffee or sweet yoghurt or treats of any kind. I still had fruit). On the day of the test I didn't eat just before going in for it. The first test I'd just had a mango which I don't think helped. I really wanted to "Pass the test " and I did. I was VERY careful with sugar intake for the rest of my pregnancy. Bub was born healthy and well and strong.

    Blood sugar is meant to rise to those levels a couple of hours after eating. I mean it's easy to bring an on the spot blood sugar level down by just not eating a few hours before the test.

    You really need the proper diabetes test to get any kind of proper reading. I agree with Meredith, the test is meaningless.
