Yesterday after having a 140 FBG, I ate a dragon fruit and a kiwi about 11 am because they were both getting old and I didn't want to throw them out. I didn't test before eating them, but tested again about 2:30 pm after getting back from town to get some supplies for a project I'm working on. I was surprised at a 103. About as surprised as I was when I bought the dragon fruit and found out it was 5 bucks at the check out.

I usually eat pretty low carb most of the time and don't seem to have much of an insulin response and my BG hovers at higher numbers than I like. On occasions, I've seen my BG be lower after eating something carby, like it reached a point where my beta cells say enough is enough, time to react. I suspect that is what happened yesterday. I may risk another 5 dollars to try the dragon fruit one more time but do a better job testing before and after. I can test my BG and blood ketones, before and after, and speculate on what my insulin did by the results. Would be interesting if next mornings FBG was also lower than previous days. Wish we had a blood insulin home test kit available.
