So, DX as Type II in June (on my birthday). I have a complicated medical history (Primary Auto-Immune Disorder, and Arthritis) and I was put on a Ketogenic diet with calorie restrictions. So far I have lost 30 lbs, so no complaints there. But the other night I got so annoyed with making separate meals for my family (being grain and grain by-product free is hard!) I ended up eating spaghetti with them. I ate about 1 ounce of noddles and decided to test my BG every 30 mins to see what the pasta did to me (for science!). Sugars were 96, 103, 108, 112, then back down to 105 and finally 100. Yay! But FOUR hours later I test before bed it spiked to 170! I didn't have anything else to eat/drink after dinner. Why did I spike like that? I was so bummed and confused. I don't intend to start eating carbs again, but that experiment left me very confused. Can anyone shed some light?
