Default How to spike your Glucose !

I have been Diagnosed as pre Diabetic , with my last A1c coming in at 6.0 . I have been on a low carb diet , and have been using a free style lite meter and strips to test .
With a lot of attention to eating low carb , and exercise , I have seen my readings drop to a very acceptable level .
Today the grand kids were over , and wanted McDonalds for lunch . I haven't had a burger or fries since I started this journey . I knew my number would spike. I tested 1 hour after eating , 137. 2 hours after, it dropped to 96 , and 3 hours later , it was 86 .
Is that about a normal response to the carbs , and a normal drop ?

Well, you got away with it Bob. This time!

I've had similar results when I indulged after a considerable period of time of being in good control. Maybe it's because the pancreas had a good rest.

IF it was a burger and fries, I think my response would be over the moon and still there after 2 hours. I haven't had a burger (with bun) and fries in at least 5 1/2 years.

Normal is different for everyone, but I'd say that wasn't too bad for someone with "D", or pre"D".

Think I've had this since 2003. Told I was Type 2 lean on 2/13/12.

It's a good response for a prediabetic. A non-diabetic wouldn't have cracked 120 at 2 hours. The thing is, you can occasionally have a 'bad' meal. It's the day-to-day thing that beats you up.

In general with the weight watchers group. Those who had a small binge like yours twice a week continued to do well. I stopped having problems at holidays by portioning smaller amounts of carbs. Never a problem until my honeymoon with 1.5 ended.
