I went out to eat last night and ate about 1/4c of hummus, 2T of roasted grits, and a cup of corn crab soup, 1 slice of pork and about 10 sugar snap peas. 3 hrs later I checked bs and measured 120 so I ate about 4T of the leftover hummus and about 8 chips. I went to sleep and woke up about 3 hrs later and was shaking like I was crashing --measured again and was at 225! Could I have had that long of a delay from dinner (8pm) and what would have caused it from what I ate? I've never shaken when I went up before. What are you supposed to do when you spike like this? I drank a glass of water and went back to bed. But it was scarry since I'm a single person and didn't know if I was in trouble or what I should do-

"With the exception of bran-based and wholegrain cereal, most breakfast cereals (like White Corn Grits) are typically quite high on the glycemic index." Which means they raise blood glucose levels quite fast. The corn in the soup was also high carb. Then the chips. That was a very high carb meal. I would not eat more food when I was 120. I think your BG was climbing when you were 120. The chips made it climb even more. The fatty meat explains why you were not higher until several hours after the meal.

I never eat any kind of cereal. This link explains why.
