OK, I was a little worried because I’ve had 3 fasting blood sugars taken by the doctor in the last 3 years which were all a little high for fasting. Scores of 101, 99 and 102 each one year apart. Now after the second one, they did a long term blood cell test that showed my blood sugar had been normal over the last several months.
But I decided to get a blood sugar tester. My grandpa developed diabetes and my father had fasting blood sugars like mine, but died from an infection that was in part due to poor circulation, so there was suspicion that he had blood sugar issues that weren’t getting detected.
I know that typically its carbs to spike blood sugar but I basically went to McDonald’s and got two McGriddle breakfast burritos. I could only finish one and a half. And I had coffee and about 16 ounces of milk. I know that its actually pretty isocaloric, but I never eat pure carbs anyway.
So I tested at 2, 3, 4 and 5 hours after the meal and also worked out and got the following:
2 hours: 87
Workout for 30 minutes
3 hours: 101
4 hours: 100
5 hours: 71
Anyone care to help me interpret? Anything odd?
I have heard that a workout can raise blood sugar a little if its not high when you start.
I’ll also mention that even at 5 hours I would have bet that I was still digesting my food. I was not hungery until about 7 hours after the meal. And I tested a few other times, and NEVER got anything like the 140 that I see some people getting after eating.
But my fasting level the next morning after about 10 hours was 97???
