    Hello, Your blood glucose level starts out in the morning higher than recommended (fasting level). It will rise after you eat. I would suggest calling your doctor about your blood glucose values. I would suggest starting at the fasting values. Your doctor may want to change your Metformin amounts or perhaps another medication. Please let us know how you make out.
