More great info Judy, and thanks to Sally as well!! As I am already eating around 90 grams (approx 90 almonds per day, as I eat 30 almonds preceeding each meal, I could easily incorporate Stu's one almond every 10 minutes into my 2 hour runs. Of course, all of this is new territory to me (not running, but running with type II), so i'll will experiment...

Just as today, I experimented with chinese food, moo shoo pork, sezchuan beef, a spoon of curry rice, 3 forks of chow mein, and some spring rolls, and didn't have opp to test at one hour, but tested at 2 hours and was 136, so a bit startled, so did a 40 min very brisk walk, and it jumped down to 82 when I got back. So, does anyone know what chinese food might have done at one hour? Does it climb from one to two , or I wonder if the 136 was the peak. I still am a bit shy to test outside of the house and a bit afraid of catching Hep A, B, C, Aids (less likely I suppose) etc, if for some reason my finger doesn't heal quick enough and I were to touch a surface that was infected (that's another post)....

Nobody can say what your 1-hr bg likely was, but it was most assuredly higher than your 2-hr PP. I've not heard of a single case of catching Hep in the way you describe. The likelihood might be akin to being struck by lightening on a sunny cloudless, thunderless day.

Good to know, but any idea how long it takes for the finger to heal completely?, as my understanding is you can catch things like Hep if there is blood to blood contact, and more alarming is that Hep C can live up to days on a surface. So, yes, people win the lottery but I never will, but I suppose it's just risk analysis and as you said, highly unlikely.

Yes Hepatitis C can exist for days on a surface.
You can get a Hep C vaccination against this. This jab is standard for all workers in the British Health Service (NHS). I had no weird reaction to it.

Oh and Chinese food is a blood sugar nightmare, most of the sauces contain sugar or jaggery.
