Do you find that this lower reading comes after you walk or exercise? My husband had this happen at the early stages post op when he became diabetic. He would take a walk after lunch, but the reading was not reflecting the carbs eaten yet and the walking tended to make the glucose level drop. His certified diabetes educator advised him to take a little more in the way of carbs (without insulin covering it at that point) to elevate his number. This way when the exercise would cause his number to fall, it would not be a steep drop because of the carbs consumed. Again it is better to have a higher number than a lower one. By high I am not talking about something in the 200-300 range, but rather something like 130-175 and then if it drops, you won't bottom out.
