A peculiar problem-Type2 Diabetes

I have a peculiar problem.

2 hours after my meal my readings are around 220. Thereafter about 3.5 hours after the meal (approx when sugar reading is 200) it rises and rapidly to a reading of approx 400 without my eating anything. From trial and error I have realized that if I quickly eat another meal ( a proper one) the reading goes down to 220 again. What is going on?

My meal is usually a small cup Brown rice with dal, one steamed vegetable and 1 cup curd or butter milk. From an LCHF point of view am I missing something. Is my meal too small. Should I add fats? Most of you mentioned that you eat only 3 meals on LCHF diet.

I have checked this only after my lunch and will soon check it after BF and dinner also.

Presently I am not on any medications except Endoformin SR 1000 at night. I include a cardio workout every day morning for 30 min.

Please advise all you experienced people.

My fasting sugar is between 140-150 and my weight is 54 kg and height is 5.2".

Triglycerides 146 and Cholestrol 210


Your bs levels are pretty high,I will suggest you should stop cardio work out.reasons I will explain some other time. Next thing ,which is advisable is to get your blood tests done at a good lab,and this should include,fbs,ppbs after 2 hours,HBA1C ,c-peptide as well as CRP,lipid profile ( not req. if done recently ) Kidney and liver function tests. Only after analysing result, any thing definite could be suggested.


You should immediately contact an endrocinologist.


Since nobody has any similar experience in high sugars after the 2 hours mark, I guess I will have to see the doctor. Sorry, I have little respect for Diabetologists as they have failed me. None have suggested low carb, exercise or lifestyle changes. They all believe only in medication. I would have preferred to handle it myself with help from some of you.

Thanks all of you for your suggestions. Low carb does not suit me as I get giddiness and severe constipation. Presently I am approx 100 gm carb diet with 30 min cardio exercise. Anyone know of a good Diabetologist in Mumbai or a Naturopath who has worked with Diabetes? Do let me know.

Fasting blood sugar (FBS) must be less than 100 mg/dL and post-prandial blood sugar (PPBS) -2 hours after taking meals - must be less than 140 mg/dL. Take HbA1c test and consult an endocrinologist.

Endoformin SR-1000 contains metformin only.
