I learn something everyday, and this is what I am going to learn today.
I am a type II; take meds; watch my lo carbs; and exercise. My blood sugars are finally back down to normal for me, in the 100’s and 90’s. In the last month, because of a sinus infection, I wake up with pillow mouth, like I swallowed my pillow, and my stomach is very queasy…so I try to eat as soon as I can stomach food. BUT, in the urgency to eat, I sometimes am 1/2 done with a bowl of cereal or whatever, and remember, OMG! I forgot to test. Now what?
So here’s my question, if it takes 20 minutes for your stomach to digest the food (if not longer) how long could you go after having eaten something to get an accurate FBS? Or would it just be better to call it a reading, and not an FBS, as long as I had a number to start the day off with? I hate to get technical on these things…but there is a need for accuracy, I guess.
Would like to know your thoughts.
