oh hey, i'm dumb and totally forgot that i've also been taking pseudoephedrine at night to deal with the stupid phlegm factory in my sinuses. so yeah, multiple stimulants before bed could certainly explain high fasting glucose. ooh, i wonder if i'm actually going hypoglycemic at night, because i've been waking with night sweats. could be explained by drug induced insulin spike causing glucose crash with rebound (Somogyi effect)... i must learn more about insulin and glucose metabolism. most of the literature is related to diabetes, and i don't know how it might apply differently to someone who generally has just high normal glucose with possibly some insulin resistance. so far everything i know is from gary taubes' books and the art and science of low carbohydrate living.

edit:
just now i got a reading of 99 at about 2 hrs postprandial.
