Brief Answer:
Various body mechanisms regulates sugar.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Good to hear from you again.

In fasting state,even if you do not ear the liver continuous to produce sugar from various sources. This could be the reason for this variation.

When the sugar falls below certain level,the various body mechanism starts acting and liver starts producing sugar.

The ideal fasting sugar is about 10 hours fasting from last meal.
