Hi, Lisa,

That's a question related to one I've ALWAYS wanted to know the answer
to, but I don't think anyone knows.

I also find it VERY hard to keep my 2 hour postprandial BGs below 200 --
and yet, they're usually back to normal in 4 hours if I took the right
amount of insulin. 

I've been told by many people that the transitory nature of the high
(doesn't last more than 2 or 3 hours) won't hurt me (except that I FEEL
crummy with a dry mouth and cotton-headed for about an hour!), but I
wonder if it has ever been proven one way or the other. 

For me, with Humalog, I can't move the injection (will be bolus in
March!!) any farther ahead, because I start to crash within 10 - 15

So is the higher-than-normal peak just part of having DM, and should we
even be THINKING about it??????
