Also to add to AOKAY's post - my husband is diabetic and has a meter here.  I take my sugar sometimes (no reason, I just like to see what it is)  I was going for a blood test and right before I went I took my reading and got 98.  I went right to the place to get my blood drawn and when it came back it was 86.

That could be due to the fact that a lab is more sensitive, basically the margin of error is greater on a home device.  I'm guessing my glucose was up since I had eaten 9.5 hours prior.

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack
