Default Annoyingly Random

This disease can be real annoying sometimes in its unpredictability. I have a friend who handed in his two week notice at work, we all go out for a goodbye lunch. I figure this will be my 'cheat' for the month or so. I have a burger on a lettuce wrap, a 22 ounce IPA, a bunch of french fries and a few onion rings as well. I was expecting my BS to go to 160 easy, maybe break 200 for the first time in a while. What's my reading, averaged over three fingers? 98.

I guess it's possible I took it easier on the fries than I thought, but I did have five HUGE onion rings, breaded to hell and back. And the beer too, maybe that did it. You'd expect an IPA to boost you a bit. I'm checking again in an hour or so just to see what's up, but this kind of thing gets on your nerves, the unpredictability of responses.

Watch for that delayed spike! Might be 4 or 5 hours down the road!

You probably wont get a spike from it. You did manage to refill you glycogen supply so it will be waiting there for when you least expect it.

Morning numbers will probably be higher than normal for a few days, you will have to hit the weights to burn the glycogen out.
I really miss beer I was a huge microbrew know-it-all beer snob, sadly havent even tried a beer since DX , I have a theory that if I have a few shots of something very strong and very low carb before I drink the beer it might shut down my liver long enough for me to enjoy a beer and not get a spike from it. Doesn't sound like a real healthy test but could be a fun one.

It happens that way for me now too. If I eat carbs I actually might not spike, but the next morning my fasting number is up.

I have this happen sometimes too. It will raise my fasting numbers later or if the crazy lasts for more than a few meals then I start spiking like crazy. I assume it has to do with my muscles having some extra space for the glucose if it's a one time thing.

Never went above 120, morning fasting was at 105 which is normal so far. Same for today. Guess I'll see it somewhere some time.
