    I wonder if anyone has any information. I fell and cut my lip badly, and had to have surgery. Consequently I didn’t eat for a couple of days. I often try and fast most of the day, and my blood sugar levels have been fine, down to between 4 and 6. I was horrified to see that when they tested my blood sugar in hospital it was 14.1, the highest it has ever been. It went down to 10 at home but is now back at 14. Does anyone know if this is normal/to be expected?
