I have been feeling good the past week and trends in my BG have been much better.
You shouldn’t be too excited unless you’re staying elevated more than 2 hours after eating. At 2 hours is a good time to check. A rise to nearly 200 isn’t unusual depending upon the carb content. The real issue comes if you stay elevated longer than 2 hours after the meal.
That’s when highs tend to occur. If you’re really high consistenty with the right insulin:carb ratio, you can also try bolusing earlier to head off the spike. The 15-20 minutes ahead of eating is just a general guideline. With fast acting carbs, you may need to bolus earlier.
