Re: [IP] Non-diabetic highest BG?


The norm values for BGs after a meal is 140.

As to how quickly insulin reacts, I'm afraid that someone one else will have
to answer that.

You get an automatic pass when American is not your native tongue.  However,
it's been my experience that people who use American as a second language
often do better than native speakers.
