    Hello guys
    Lately my PLBS level keeps fluctuating...one day it is high...and one day it is low...
    So I had this idea of creating a thread for this....
    we can comment what's our BG level one or two hours after meal and if we are ok with or not...
    I hope this works and might be helpful for everyone...

    I'll start

    Today it was 8.7 mmol for me...which is okay
    What about u?

    I will be all over this tomorrow as I was out without my meter.
    Good idea to help people stay on track.

    I've been feeling unwell for a few days, so I decided to test an hour or so after my breakfast (13.2) I rarely test, because I've been led to believe that testing is not needed when you are on Metformin. On the occasions I've tested before, I've never been as high as this, even after a high carb meal. Had I not tested, I would not have been aware of this rise.

    @muggle666 15.1 is very hig for fbg....and maybe that wholemeal bread just doesn't work for you?....most don't eat any kind of bread for exactly the reason that showed up in your post lunch check....it spiked you badly as it is loaded with way too many carbs. Are you on medication ??
