Default Slow to peak.

I have noticed a sort of trend in that when I test at 3-hr pp , sometimes the number is 10-20 pts higher than 2hr. I haven't tested regularly at 4hr pp, but pre-meals are back down.

for example, last night's supper: pre-meal 87, 1hr pp 106, 2hrpp 116. (I know, these are not high numbers and I'm not concernd at all, just curious why this happens.)

Is it because of the high fat that the carb digestion is being delayed? I don't eat more than 12g carbs per meal, so there isn't all that much there. Also, sometimes I eat more protein than the minimum, so could there be a delay in excess protein being broken down to glucose?

I really don't think I have the stomach-emptying complication (can't remember what that's called) because there is no symptom other than feeling overfull about a half hour after eating (sometimes, not every time).

Just wondered if anyone else has seen the same thing with them.

I have the same. Part of me wondered, "is this gastroparesis, or something? OMG!" But I do think it is just high fat.

I do not experience nausea or over-full feelings, or anything, so I think it is just the fat slowing it down.

I have wondered this as well, but didn't think I had enough of any other symptoms. It's always good to know one isn't alone and that this is more of a common thing.

thanks for your quick reply

I know know the fat slows down the digestion so your spike may be higher. Also some meds do slow down digestion. I rarely see a spike at 1 hour, and just a few points at my 2 hour reading. Usually by 4 hours I am back under 100 which to me is the goal. I never go much above 120 and rarely go below 90.

No meds here.

I think I'll change my testing to 2- and 3-hr pp for a while. Just to see if the 2hr rise is consistent. It does seem like it takes longer for my BG to return to pre-meal levels than the majority on this forum report for themselves.

Could be the proteins. Just curious what do the 12g carbs consist of ?

salad greens, black olives, vegetables, Optimist crackers, the carbs in immitation cream cheese (I'm dairy intolerant), avocados... to mention a few of my staples. Not everything at once, mind you, but a few carbs here, a few carbs there. Just a few.

oh, and some kind of low-carb "bread" or "muffin" now and then, that's made with almond meal/flaxseed meal and egg (have to limit egg so that's why now and then.)
