The meter doesn't lie

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 509

After the first reading on the meter of over 10, I have been seeing the numbers drop for four days, down in the 7s for some readings - and I thought that I would just see what happened if I ate some potato. It was just one medium baked potato, I thought it would be just a little rise - nope. back up to over ten.

Obviously I am really sensitive to carbs, not just in terms of weight but in its affect on BG.

I knew that really - it was obvious - but now that the meter has shown such a jump - and it is over 12 hours since I ate it and my BG is still the same I know that I am going to have to be really strict.
