Default Is this bad or okay?

I have one thing that I just love and if this reaction is okay then I know it would be okay for me to have it every once in a while. It is also the only bread I have eaten since diagnosed.

Took BG it was 99 (2:00) then I ate a roast beef sandwich from a local sub shop with James river BBQ sauce.

90 min later BG 146 (3:30)

60 min later BG 110 (4:30)

Is this a horrible spike or is it expected for even a non diabetic.

I would check your blood at the one hour mark, at 90 min you're probably coming down already. Anytime your BG is over 140 you are damaging tissues. Some people are OK with their BG going over 140 at the hour if it's below again at the hour and a half level, what your comfort level is will be up to you.

Frankly, that's beyond my comfort level; I don't like to get above 115. (I make no claim that things always go the way I'd like ...)

As a very occasional thing -- can't see where it's catastrophic.

I'd also take a look at what's in the BBQ sauce. Several restaurants on my Trusted List recently changed menus or recipes, and now everything they serve is spiky. Typically, the secret's in the sauce.

Definitely beyond mine, and into meter-throwing territory. I still get there too often.

If you look at the AACE guidelines (that's the endocrinology governing body), they say 142.

Anything above 140 is complications territory. 120 is the safe zone. My goal less than 100.
Did you read Blood Sugar 101?

I did and I am just wishing or I was hoping you all would have said it was okay because it went back down to my current comfort level.
I was really bad if I am going to be honest and really what is the sense in sharing and asking for advice and support if I am not going to be completely honest. I ate two sandwiches. I ran to a comfort thing. Stress at work, a little stress at home, it was raining and I could not go on a walk. I messed up. Maybe I should just give it up all together but I love it so much. Maybe I could wait a month and try getting just one, with no extra sauce and transferring it over to an oopsie.

I'm half way through "Think Like a Pancreas" by Gary Scheiner. He has been a T1 for a lot of years, and one thing about it that struck me was him mentioning his own high blood sugar readings. A story about going over 300 one time and a couple about the high 200s.

From what he mentions about his interaction with his clients, it sounds like they pick out their blood sugar targets. Some of them don't want to go too low, so they can avoid hypos. He doesn't make any moral judgement at all about that.

I especially enjoyed that part, and it's about the same for me, except maybe higher.

You need to check what happens if you did that 2 or 3 days in a row. Would you still hit just 146 ?

I would not want to do this days in a row. Not even when I was undiagnosed. But especially now that I am. I know that I do not want to go above 140. I never want to be above that number again, ever. This sandwich would be an every once in a while thing if my meter approved.

Maybe you can find a BBQ sauce that works better for you and bring it with to restaurants?

I like Stubb's Original and Weber Grill Original which both have 8g / 2 TBSP. So sure they aren't super low-carb but they taste better than any other true low-carb sauce to me and they are much better than 16-25g / 2 TBSP. Since I dip I usually only end up needing 1 TBSP anyway.
