Re: [IP] High Glycemic Foods

In a message dated 99-01-03 16:13:49 EST, you write:

<<  I've cautiously experimented with
 waiting up to 20 minutes before eating (I'm pumping lispro), but still have
 a high blood sugar reading at one hour post prandial.  By two or three
 hours, my readings are normal.  >>
How high a number are you getting at this time? If the BG is normal at 2 to 3
hours later, then there is not problem. The high number reflects the food
absorption into the blood stream. The digestion process from mouth to stomach
emptying takes 4 to 5 hours. Barbara B.
