After meals I tend to spike. My CDE keeps telling me that I should be above 145, 2 hours after a meal. She seems to think that it's ok to be up to 250.
Does this make sense? How high should I go up?
You will have to set your own goals
I try to keep my BG below 140mg/dL as much as possible. I do go over 140mg/dL after some meals but not anywhere near 250
and my goal is to spend 90% of each day (24hrs) between 70 and 140. Iím on a very aggressive treatment plain but I think ADA
guide lines for a adult is 70 to 180. Everyone has high blood sugars these are only targets I have been over 300mg/dL this month
already but my average numbers are good...Iím happy with them.
If your eating too many carbs at one meal your BG is going to spike. Just keep cutting back on the carbs until you find out
how many you can comfortably eat without going over your target whatever that numbers is. I can only eat about 30g of carbs
without going over 140mg/dL...60g will put me over 200 most of the time...do I always eat 30g or less...no...;-)
