Today, i tested my fasting blood sugar 3 times in a row in the morning.. how come it was different each time?

The first time i tested my fasting blood sugar in the morning it was 170. Then i tested it again right after and it was 130. so i tried it again and it was 114. how come it changed 3 times?

No ones sugar remains static day to day.
However I wonder why you are testing your blood sugar if you are not diabetic? Make sure if you do test that the meter is coded right (if it is a meter that must be coded) and that you have just washed your hands thoroughly with soap and water and dried them on a clean towel or paper towel. You should never use anyone else's meter, even with a fresh needle, due to the risk of passing blood-borne infections such as hepatitis and HIV>
Normal fasting (after 8 hours of no food) sugars are 99 or below. If your meter is correct (matches laboratory values) you fall in the range for diabetes.
Diagnosis of diabetes is a fasting sugar of 126 or more on 2 different occasions (by lab draw). Non-diabetic blood sugar range in the morning is 99 mg/dl or less.
I would get to a doctor and stop messing with a meter. If the meter is wrong you are upset for no reason, but if it is right you need to see a doctor anyway.
Hope this answers your question for you. Best of luck!

Blood sugar does NOT stay at one constant value all day. It changes, even minute by minute, depending on what you are doing.

AND . . . the test strips can vary in their readings. The readings using a Home Meter are APPROXIMATE, not exact. the only way to get an EXACT reading is to have a blood test performed by a doctor.

The mistake you made was taking the readings three times!! DON'T DO THAT! it only leads to confusion -- as you have learned.

Take ONE reading, and be done with it.
