I seem to be able to handle a lot of fruits and carbs (brown rice, rye bread etc). I ate a plate (a meal size) of fruit that hurt my belly (LOL). To include; 1 banana, grapes, cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwi, blueberries, pineapple, cherries and my 1 hr was 133 and my 2 hr was 110.

My smoothie is a handful of kale, 16/oz of water, and I fill the blender up to the top with frozen fruit. I sometimes drink 48/oz in a course of a few hours. My BG is under 140 at 1/hr depending the fruit.

Yesterday I used 4 oranges, 10 kiwi, some blueberries and 16/oz of water. I drank 32/oz pretty quick and my BG at 1/hr was 141 and my 2/hr was 106.
You are lucky to be able to eat this way. Even though strawberries are on the low end of the carb range, I can only eat 2 maybe 3 strawberries. I even have to remove the 3-4 grape tomatoes from my salad because leaving them in makes a big difference than when I eat a salad without them.

Is that under 120 at 1 hour postprandial?

I've tested my 15/yo son after drinking a few cokes. He is under 120 at 1 hour. Of course he is non-diabetic.

It most cases, I am under 140 @ 1 hour and under 120 @ 2 hours.
Unless I eat pizza. We get veggie pie with no cheese and sometimes I hit 150 (depending on how many slices I have). Sometimes I eat 4 or 5 slices. But pizza may only be 1-2 times per/month.

I would speculate that you were first diagnosed incorrectly or it was a stress induced event that caused your BG to skyrocket but it was not diabetes. That would explain your situation now

No, I was diagnosed correctly. I had all the symptoms; neuropathy in my feet, unexplainable weight loss, extreme thirst, frequent urination.

When the doctor suspected I was diabetic (prior to bloodwork), she did the glucose meter test at her office. My BG was 375. This was a few hours after breakfast.

To this day, my morning BG is always between 105 and 120.

in a different thread you mentioned you are glad you caught it early. the symptom of neuropathy you mention is not an early symptom. I have almost a 400BG before I found out and changed my diet and never had any neuropothy. That is a late symptom as far as I have read and heard from others. it means that your veins are being broken down furthest away from their heart (usually feet and hands). this is a symptom of many years of diabetes and problems in the body. at that point, 99.99999999999999999% of people will not be able to reverse the symptoms of diabetes ESPECIALLY without medication. As I said... you are an anomaly for this disease and I would LOVE to be in the same place. I think every diabetic could do that. but most of us have not been able to have that success.

But I do tip my hat to you . I am glad I heard one person have this type of reversal

My pancreas was able to rebound. I've reversed diabetes, not complications from the disease. And the neuropathy; In 2010, I was told it was from drinking too much. But that was just a docs opinion then. Why knows! I still have feeling in my feet.

My goal is to never go over 120! Ever, at 1hr, 2hr, etc. The reason for this is that above 140 (I target 120 to be safe from meter/ strips error) cells in your body begin to be damaged and that is what leads to diabetic complications.

I thought complication happen when BG is extremely high for long periods of time. I thought 140 at 1 hr was fairly normal.

I've attached my A1C results using a home test kit (done June 20th).
My last lab was December 2017.
