    Odd I know but yesterday after lunch which was prawn salad and orange dressing with apple chunks I felt exhausted and washed out and super thirsty. I did my blood and it was 7.9! Surely I should not feel it At this level? Thanks x

    I don't know, to be sure, because I haven't been that high for such a long time.
    But I probably would!
    You have to be careful what they put in these dressings or the Apple chunks.

    It is probably those that put your bloods up!

    Hi,

    How long after eating did you do your meter test?
    Sometimes we peak much higher, very quickly, or later, depending on the content of the meal.

    I find that sweet stuff peaks very high at 45-60 mins, and by 2 hours, there is no sign how high I went...

    I'm not sure Brun it was only an hour or so but I was definitely having the knackered thirsty high feeling I get x

    Maybe I spiked early and had dropped by the time I tested. I'll try and catch it sooner next time. X
