    Hello All,

    Hope you are all well.

    I have some strange happening going on recently.

    I have not changed the way I eat, but recently nocticed that when I test about 45mins to 1 hour after starting eating, my BS is around 8mmol to 10mmol.

    Then after 2 hours after eating its back down to around 5.5mmol to 6.5mmol.

    I am still getting back down to normal-ish levels after 2 hours, but I am worried about the 1 hour-ish mark.

    I don't know if i am over worrying this, but I have read that non-diabetics never go over 7.8mmol, no matter what they eat.

    I am lower carber and last HBa1C was 5.7%

    Cheers
    Simply.

    Hi,

    The 2 hour reading is good. I wouldn't worry about the 45 - 60 min reading - it's not excessively high and is only lasting a short while.
