Hello
Fasting should be lower fasting
no this is not normal
I would suggest that the fluctuations might represent a problem with pre diabetes..as you still clearly handle your meal...but you are too high in the morning first thing

The way to resolve this is to have a hemoglobin A1C done which will give an idea of your average sugars over 3 months.

Sugars can be higher n the morning due to catacholomaine sugars..but you should still be within normal.

Your fasting should be 6 or lower.
