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-

thanks everyone --I think I probably wrote notes wrong in the class because a friend told me to wait till count is lower than my notes say. I crash around 80 and almost faint at 75 so I'm going to try to eat around 90 -100 and see if that helps me. Also thanks for the info on the gly index --I'm going to do some studying on that. This is so different from when I could only eat 40-50 carbs a day when I was hypoglycemic! I know with time I'll learn more -- everyone here is a great help and I thank you so much!
