Patient :I had an anxiety attack where I had one high reading where the meter said blood sugar was high. And it said ketone. After that my 12 hour fasting blood sugar was 80 and other than taking it imediately after I eat it ranges from 90-107 couple hours after eating. Should I worry about that one test that came out high with ketone?
Thanks for your query.
Read and understood your history of very high sugar and ketone readings once. But followed by a normal reading after 12 hours of fasting as 80 and then 90 to 107 taken after the food at various times.
The most important possibility is that the the strip you used might have been faulty, This can happen.
Since your readings of today are absolutely normal just stop worrying as the very high blood sugar can not come to normal so fast. Take one random reading some other time of the day, take a fasting and post-prandial tomorrow.
By the way, are you diabetic and / or taking medicines for diabetes?
I hope this defuses your anxiety. There is nothing to worry at the moment.
