See answer: Fluctuations in blood sugar are quite normal and the rule rather than the exception. Blood sugar values will vary depending on the nutritional content of your diet, the amount of time that has elapsed since your last meal, your level of exercise and activity as well as being potentially influenced by medications and illness and other intangible factors. Your fluctuations are well within normal.
