Someone said something about my machine and if it was matched right and all that. I looked into it, and found that the test strips were b18 and the machine was only showing b1 so I went out and got a new machine and strips and all that the one I had was one I got *free* and only got a few strips anyway.
So now, I have a machine I know is set right, the strips and machine are matched up, and so I tested before I ate anything.. I brought some candy that was high in carbs just to test the machine.
Before eating my number was 80 *Hadn't had anything but coke in three hours* After eating the candy and testing twenty minutes later my number was 174. I just tested again which makes it two and half hours and it's 120. Mind you I only had about 4 pieces of twizzlers candy.
Is this normal? For someone who is not diabetic to have a BS shot up like that and drop down with in normal range later? Guess I am still trying to figure out if the one Dr is wrong and my Family Dr is right. Thanks and have a good start to this week
