Default What is considered a "good" pp increase?

More specifically, is a 15 pt. increase at 2 hr. considered acceptable? I am still successfully working my numbers down and this was today's reading after breakfast. Am curious what you average or consider controlled.

That sounds decent for two hours - what was your starting level? Did you take a one-hour test?

I personally prefer no increase or even a drop, but that's just me.

It would be for me... as long as it wasn't over 140. If I start out at 95 and the meal raises my BG to 110 - that's quite acceptable. However, if my pre-meal is elevated, say, 120, then a 15-pt rise would put me too near the upper limit.

So..... the answer is "depends!"
