Let's talk blood sugar

I'm a non diabetic, but I have noticed over the past few months or so that my blood sugar seems drop quite a bit in the afternoons. A family member suggested that I pick up one of those self testing meters and keep a track on my blood sugar when I feel like it's dropping low.

For example I was feeling a bit shaky and anxious earlier and it had dropped to 70. (That's the lowest number I've ever had it read). I drank some 100% fruit juice I keep in the fridge at work, tested it again 15 minutes later, and it was up over 100.

Is this a normal thing that I'm putting too much thought into, or should I speak to my doctor about it? I tend to be on the more anxious side, and I notice even very subtle changes in my body.

For the record I had labs done about a month ago and everything was normal.

Thanks for any and all input.

Should be low. Friday brain melt. Lows are well more concerning inpatient.

Had a large dinner at like 10pm last night. Had some pop tarts and a granola bar for breakfast. Sugar rose to like 165 about an hour after eating -highest I've ever seen it.

Ate a small 250 calorie TV dinner, a pretzle, and a granola bar this afternoon. I've been running around 100 - 110 all day. Feels a lot more comfortable than that 70 shit yesterday.

Probably won't eat again until 8 or 8:30. Hoping to see it around 80-90 at that time.

I actually eat less at each meal but eat healthy more times during the day.
Biggest change for me was eating more often like this instead of eating twice a day like I was used to. Now when I need to fast for 12 hrs for a complete blood test its lots harder than it used to be

Yeah....you pretty much have to not eat after 7 or 8 PM and plan your visit to Quest Diagnostics at 8 AM in the morning....once they draw blood head to Panera's or Cracker Barrel to eat breakfast.
