Not diabetic but been close to pre diabetes in the past so I sporadically monitor my blood glucose.

I ate last night at 10pm. Possibly earlier. On waking my blood glucose was 5.9 after ten hours. I had one cup of tee with no sugar just two sweaters and 14 hours since I last ate with this just cup of tea it's 5.6.

Is this OK?

Going to bed with high blood sugar levels can mean your body takes longer to reduce them. Sometimes if you've not eaten for a long time your body compensates and your blood sugar levels go up slightly. Is there a reason you're worried or monitoring?

Only because I have been just over then just under with my hb1ac before.

I'm also leaking fluid into my macular which the hospital thinks is due to my high BP. I suspect its partly due to being just under prediabetic
