I’ve learned since coming to TD that some of you (perhaps it is only T1s though?) test at both one hour and again at two hours after meal. (And I always wonder, too, do you time from when you begin to eat or when you finish??)
I wanted to get a better idea how I’m handling things; I want to know if I am spiking really high… so tonight an hour after supper at a local steakhouse, I tested. 209.
Now, I had a 6-oz filet, 6 grilled shrimp, cesear salad, and maybe a third-cup of baked sweet potato w/ only butter. It’s now two hours later, and it’s down to 107 – which is really good, yes, I know.
So… should I worry about the one-hour reading? I just have never taken one-hour readings before, so they may always be this way… and I was so pleased this morning when my pre-breakfast reading of 116 dropped to 96 an hour and a half after a large glass of milk beverage (approx. 35gr of carbs).
