Re: [IP] non-diabetic bg

I often refer to one of my text books.
This one is "Human Physiology and Mechanisms of Disease" by Guyton and Hall. It
says: "The normal blood glucose concentration in a person who has not eaten a
meal within the past 3 to 4 hours is approximately 90 mg  per 100 ml of blood,
and even after a meal containing large amounts of carbohydrates, this
concentration rarely rises above 140 mg per 100 ml of blood unless the person
has diabetes mellitus."

I also remember hearing somewhere where researchers found people who were not
diabetic who could go as high as 200 after a meal for a short period of time but
I have no idea where I could find that info again.
