Hello  Howard,
When someone keeps getting low blood sugar readings, the answer is not to eat sweets. The answer is to go back to your doctor with the readings and get your medication adjusted. Having lower glucose readings recently can be a result of weight loss. Have you been losing weight?

You need to make an appointment with your health care professional to review your diet, medication and blood sugar readings.
