There is always protein bread here ( 2,2 gram carbs for each slice), since thats what I eat, but he wont have that in the morning.

No wonder he shoots up and crashes. Good luck convincing him to change his diet...as I said husbands can be hard!

It sounds like he's at about where my Daddy was when he was diagnosed with D. It was a LOW that sent him to the ER. Following that, his doctor ordered a 6-hour glucose tolerance test that showed him swinging both high and low. The doc then put him on the standard ADA exchange diet, which actually worked very well for him. (I know it doesn't for others -- it wouldn't for me -- but it did for him.)

My husband has tested his BG about 20 times a day those last day. His FBG is between 5,2 and 5,9. He has a peak after each meal with more than 20 carbs, worst after breakfast. His reading 1 hour after gives a reading between 10,8 and 12,6

Its kind of strange because my BG are lower than his all the time except from when it sometimes drop all the way down to 2,3 after a spike. I am afraid his next A1c will be higher....
Today he got a letter from the doctor. He should go to the doctor after one month to take some more test, because she thinks he is in a early stage of type 2.

Sorry it sure is...maybe your meal time stress will get less. I'm sorry, but with his food at breakfast it's not surprising. He will love your crackers, tho'. We sure do!

Please understand I'm not making light of your husband's potential diagnosis, but he could do worse than living with the Optimist of the Optimist Cracker

A little update.
He went to the doctor today, but was told it is quite normal to have a BG that is between 10 and 12 after meals, ans as long as his BG goes down during 2 to 3 hours it is nothing to think about.
They refused him to take an glucose-test But they did take an c-peptid.test at least........

It may be normal for someone with diabetes who tries to do a little bit to control their BG to be 10-12 (200ish) after meals.

Just like it would be a true statement to say it is quite normal for people that step out in a busy street and get hit by a bus to suffer fatal injuries.

But I think most of us here want want to do better than that. I'd prefer to do something to avoid the "normal" outcome. Why don't they want to help?
