I am still quite new to diabetes, so I would like to know whether the following BG levels are OK. I suppose it is expected that potatoes will cause a rapid spike. I have eaten 2 boiled potatoes (200g) and chicken (not too fat) for dinner today. I have injected 2U of Novorapid right before eating (I am still in my honeymoon phase, so this corresponds to my insulin/carb ratio, which is 1:25). Because I had only rarely eaten boiled potatoes in my diabetic life, I wondered what the effect would be and did frequent tests with my meter after eating my dinner: 19:30 - 5.7 19:40 - injected 2U Novorapid and started my dinner. 19:51 - 5.9 20:11 - 8.5 20:20 - 9.4 20:25 - did a few pushups as I thought my BG was a bit too high 20:30 - 8.3 20:37 - 7.1 20:54 - 7.3 21:15 - 6.5 21:53 - 5.2 The spike to 9.4 took me a bit by surprise. Or, should I consider it "normal" given the fact that it dropped back again? P.S. I suppose I could have injected a few minutes earlier but then I had experienced a few hypos injecting too early in the past, so I am a bit weary of this. Any comments?
