I'm newly-diagnosed, so please excuse a na´ve question; but why, since you've been diabetic for over 3 years, did you decide to run a diagnostic test? Your fasting and final bg test results showed that you have generally good control, but not unexpectedly for a T2, ingesting a heap of simple sugar gave you a spike.

AnnC,
The reason I ran the test, was not whether I would spike or not, but rather, how I responded: How high was it & how quickly I recovered, ie the profile of the curve.

The curve looks pretty good to me. Your figures after one hour are the only ones above the target of 7.8. The rest come down nicely and are under the wire by two hours.

Looks like you've got a fair control but I agree, don't go blowing the day's carb allowance on simple glucose too often!

It wouldn't do for me to do this. My trend would probably make yours look like a tiny blip on the lower left side under my curve.

iPhone doesn't show sig, you on meds?

Normally they use the OGTT for diagnostic purposes only. I've rarely heard of someone already on medication do an OGTT. Since you are on medication, I wonder how accurate the test really is. Also what type of glucose solution did you use?

I agree my meds could skew the result but in post above yours he mention he has not had any meds for a week.

Have you been eating LC/HF? If so, your OGTT would be expected to go higher. No cause for concern if your controlling your numbers when not chugging pure glucose.
