Some contributors on this forum have clearly done quite a lot of research. I am just three days into my trial of the Libre, and fascinating it is. I have had a couple of days away from home and thought that for the first time since my diagnosis four months ago, I would eat rather irrationally whilst being able to monitor the effect with the Libre. That involved a Chinese with sweet and sour, rice, beef curry and starter spring rolls and chicken wings. Glucose before the meal was 4.9, rising to 10.4 an hour after the meal and falling to 6.1 after three hours. There was obviously no significant effect on average glucose with this one event of indulgence. It got me wondering whether regular spikes from injudicious eating were more important than average glucose levels, or vice versa, in preventing the complications of diabetes. Perhaps both matter. Anyone come across data that clarifies this?
