Hello Ashleigh27,

Welcome again to EmpowHER. I remember speaking with you a few months ago about your concerns regarding elevated blood sugar levels.

Have you been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes? Do you check your blood sugar levels with a fingerstick and glucose monitor? Are you taking any medication to control the diabetes? Do you follow a special diet?

I do not know what you are using as a reference, that is the fingerstick strip and normal range, so I would say accept your physician's reply that a reading of 9.5 is normal for you.
