I had a bit of a shock this afternoon. I've been eating low carb for over a year, with the odd cheat days. Last cheat day was around Christmas / New Year when some friends rocked up with pizzas and I did a bit of a weird reading of 7.7mmol only at 1h but then 9.4 mmol at 1.5h, but it went back to 4.7 by 2 hours. Well, today I took a chance with about 70g (4 slices of baguette - not a large loaf but that thin French breadstick), and I had it with ham, avocado and a glass of goat's milk. Oh, how I enjoyed it after so long of hardly touching grains. But, then the shock. (I didn't do a pre-meal reading but I hadn't eaten for hours and I'd only eaten eggs, macadamia nuts, cheese and a square of 85% dark chocolate with a cup of tea in the early part of the day.) Then at 1 hour it was 11.2 mmol, then 15 mins later it was 11.5 mmol... from that little bit of bread... but then the bigger shock - at 2 hours, I was still 10.4 mmol! My last glucose tolerance test a few months ago I spiked to 12.1 at 1 hour but had recovered to 6.5 mmol by 2 hours so this is the first time I've still been so high around the 2 hour mark apart from when I was pregnant with gestational diabetes... By 2h 20 I was 8.4 mmol and 2h 30 was 7.9 mmol. I'm wondering if the sleep deprivation (3 little kids including one baby) is contributing if I have been eating mostly low carb for a while. Is this T2 already or could it still be pre-diabetes? I doubt I had more than 50g of carbs when 70g of bread has no more than 50g carbs / 100g, and the ham, milk and avocado would have a few carbs but not that many. I've tested again now a couple of hours later and I'm back to 4.9 mmol thankfully.
