Default High BG only after lunch

Advised I was prediabetic a few months ago. Checking my BG level regularly to see what I am and not able to eat but unable to find a pattern except that I by BG seems to be high only at noon. I ate one fried chicken breast with bowl of brown rice at noon for lunch and at 1 my BG went 206 the other night I ate some chicken wings with brown rice and an hour later it was 128 does anyone know why this is? Thank You much

Most type 2 diabetic's insulin resistance is highest in the morning and gets less as the day goes along. You will react differently to the same foods at different times a day.

Do you know what your BG was before you eat?

Mornings are the toughest time for carb sensitivity so you could have been high before lunch and jest added to it with lunch. did you have fruit or drinks with lunch? did you walk home from work or do any phisical work after work (phisical activity lowers BG)

OR

Because your diabetic BG can change for no apparent reason (apparent in that you haven't figured out why ... yeat)

Not for this particular instance of 206 reading I did not have a before reading but from my record prior to lunches has been low 90s to 110 after a combination of and/ or all natural peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat,oatmeal and coffee at about 8 am. I did suspect that usually after lunch at work I go back to my desk and sit until I take the one hour BG but then I realize I am not that much more active after dinner when my BG is fine cause I usually exercise after I take my one hour post dinner read. Also I have not consumed any sugar drinks since my DX and sometimes I do eat fruits with my lunch but not in this instance.

Could rice be the culprit, rather than the time of day?

That's what stuck out to me. As well as any breading, sauce used on the chicken.

Welcome to our forum. Diabetes can be very frustrating because your body reacts differently at different times of the day. Those type of high bgs are definitely in full blown diabetic territory. Many of us have had to give up things like rice, bread, cereal, pasta and anything with wheat in it because it spikes us too high. A normal non D is usually 70-100 most of the day so many of us try to keep our bgs in that range are fairly close to it.

If I had bread and oatmeal for breakfast I would probably be ok at about the 2 hr mark but would start to spike at the 3 hr mark. That would be with an extended bolus of insulin. Even that may not bring it down. Just the oatmeal alone does that to me.

All rice does that to me also. YMMV though

The lunch chicken breast has little fat. Many carbs without fats are digested quickly. The supper chicken wings and the peanutbutter sandwich had more fat, which may have delayed the spike from all the rice and bread carbs. If you had tested at 3 hr pp you may have seen higher numbers.

You might want to consider reducing the amount of rice you eat, and leave out the sandwich bread and just eat the filling. Put peanut butter on celery, or, like I do, just lick the spoonfull.
