RE: [IP] type II



Susan,

I can only give you my own experience prior to starting insulin. Depending
on what I ate my blood sugar after a meal would spike as high as 400 and
would stay that high hour after hour. Very gradually it would come back down
to around 200. The best time to test is at the 2 hour after a meal mark.
Many type 2s will show 200+ readings and the reading will drop very slowly.
It is my understanding that a non diabetic's blood sugar seldom goes over
140 after a meal.

If you were "testing" someone for type II, what kind of pattern should you
see after a meal?  i.e. besides a fasting test, when after a meal should you
test and what kind of numbers are typical?  How high is the "highest" a
non-D should rise after meals?

Thanks,
Susan
