    So at 4.45 today I was 4.8 I had 4 sausages that are 1.4g of carbs for 2.
    3 hours later I’m
    Still a 6.
    Does that mean my sugars went too high? Such low carbs shouldn’t should it?
    Not worried just didn’t expect it to be that high.

    You’ve just come off your meds? I think you might find it takes a while to adapt.. also 6 ain’t bad...

    Oh I know I just wondered whether if I was 6 3 hours after whether it meant I’d gone too high

    Just over 1mmol higher, still only 6 and days after meds stopped. I’d be ecstatic

    Don’t forget other things than food have an effect sometimes

    I’m always in the 6s+ after a meal yet my Hba1c is 36 for over a year. I’d be happy with your readings. Sounds good to me.

    Just keeping as low as possible. I’d been in the 4s a lot of the day but didn’t expect those sausages to go as high not after 3 hours. Just thought if still at 6 they must have been considerably higher at 2 hours.

    But if it’s fine that’s good

    Non diabetics have blood sugars ranging between 4 and 7 …. 6 is normal :). Congratulations.
