Just finished reading a GREAT article in Diabetes Health that shared the experience of someone testing after washing her hands with soap and water vs. after handling a number of foods.
Here’s a little excerpt. Do you have any comparable experiences?
"When Young washed her hands with soap and water and then tested, the meter read 80 mg/dl. When she had lotion on her hands, the meter read 87 mg/dl. After she handled the following foods, the meter readings were all over the map:
- Milk: 92 mg/dl
- Raspberries: 92 mg/dl
- Peanut butter: 94 mg/dl
- Red peppers: 117 mg/dl
- Sweet wine: 122 mg/dl
- Grapes: 447 mg/dl
- Grapes, followed by wiping (but not washing) hands: 132 mg/dl"
