Blood sugar readings

Dear Anup,

I am on LCHF diet. So as per your reply 2 days back, I tested my blood sugars after 1 & 2 hours after breakfast lunch & dinner. The readings were as given below:

15 Sept. 2015

2 hour after dinner- 141

1 hour after dinner- 133

1 hour after evening snack- 104

2 hour after lunch- 122

1 hour after lunch- 136

2 hour after breakfast - 111

1 hour after breakfast - 128

fbs after 12 hours fasting-110

14 Sept. 2015

2 hours after dinner - 163

1 hour after dinner - 124

2hour after lunch - 128

1 hour after lunch - 130

2 hour after breakfast - 133

1 hour after break fast - 140

fbs after 12 hour fasting - 111.

My question is why the reading for 2 hours after dinner is higher than reading for 1 hour after dinner. I had expected the 2 hour reading to be lower than 1 hour readings.

Regards,

Ramesh Bapat

I also have a related question.During the day,if I do not eat anything for about three hours,there is every chance of hypo,because I am on insulin.But,after dinner at 9.00 p.m,I do not consume any thing until 8.00 a.m next morning without any adverse effects.I suspect that the liver has it's own mechanism to take care of the sugar levels.There must be a cogent explanation for this phenomenon.I hope some light will be thrown on this.

By the way,my testing schedule is as follows:

Before and after BF,Lunch and dinner,once every week i.e during BF one week,lunch next week and dinner the next week,This schedule is prescribed by my hospital.

anup,I do not know what to answer.I am on insulin,my sugar is under control to my satisfaction,I face hypo occasionally when I delay my food and I am sure my insulin dose will be reduced shortly because of the improved numbers and also I only share my personal experience on this forum.Against this,I am receiving advise from you,who is not on insulin or medication and who also do not experience any hypo.I consult a well recognized hospital treating at least 50 patients a day.As per your advise this blogger has taken 9 to 10 blood tests a day which do not establish any trend.You are trying to advise me about insulin usage,which I find rather funny because I do not see on what basis you are doing so,either by experience or qualification.Now,as usual.you will start raising the temperature,please go ahead.

Dear bapatrameshji

Try LWMDR atleast for a month and ...afterwards enjoy your results. Go through Diaife result after consuming LWMDR

I had done same experience with other wheat but with in a month FB'S rises to 116 from 84. So at least I am not agreed with Google baba search engine information. If you eat LWMDR you can eat any thing you want for a change and no abnormality will be arises. Every one is rigid with his own experience so be happy and guide the people in his own way. From last 2 months my fbs level is always under 90 which was 125 earlier. Now I eat everything I want and sometimes sweets also and oviously follow LWMDR in BF and dinner. I agree controlling the diet is required for all diabetic person but in case of long wheat u can get some freedom and get always encouraging results. Both the ways are good like LCHF diet and LWMDR but without any opinion LWMDR is much better option comparetively along with a hope. We can share our experience to the people not to imposing to use our way.

THANKS

Yes I agree with a quote not a single disease will cure as of now. If any one got suffered from fever no one can give guarantee that fever will never come again. Yes off course duration of repeating may vary. So my dear friend stay happy with the treatment we all follow as per our wish. If we will get relief life time by our own way. ..I think that's also be good. We must share our experience to the needy people. And our bs levels always be in control range then we people no need to worry just monitoring must be essential.

Thanks
