Family practice : Why are you checking your blood sugars. Do you have any symptoms? It would matter how or if you treat the low bs 's. You should have an Insulin level. Eat less carbohydrates and more protein with your diet.

Normal: That is normal remember the accuracy of most home blood glucose machines is 20 points plus or minus so a reading of 80 could be 100 or 60 and still be statistically the same.
