So I check my blood sugar 3 times a day. When I wake up it is normally between 100-115. When I get home from work (about 6 hours after lunch) it is normally 88-95. And between 1 and 3 hours after dinner before bed which is normally 95-120.
It has never been below 90 without alcohol 1-3 hours after dinner. Last night after eating a big salad and a large bowl of chicken alfredo no less I checked it expecting the carbs to spike it. This was a 1 hour post meal check btw. My pre check guess was it would be 120 or so. Washed hands took the reading and it said 78!?. In shock, I repeated test on a finger on the other hand and got 79. I have maybe seen a reading in the high 70’s one other time in my 3 years of every checking my readings. I cannot think of anything that I did differently that day than I have done any other day.
How could I load up on carbs and one hour later have a reading of 78? How weird is that?
