My A1C is only 5.7 but I know my glucose spikes quite high after eating, even a couple hours afterward. Is this something to worry about?

How high is quite high? I agree with Emma, you need to figure out what food or drink in your diet is causing the spikes. Perhaps it is the quantity of food at one time in general that is causing the spikes. It could be something simple like the ketchup or soy sauce that you use.

Hi, JD
If I were you, I would find out which foods in your diet are causing the spikes. Then, decide what you want to do with that particular food; i.e., leave it out of your diet entirely or have it much less. Also, I find that walking at a nice even pace after eating does wonders for me because it gets rid of the spikes entirely.

Question … just cause I've been curious about this.
For example sake - I eat dinner at 6pm. I got for a walk roughly 6:45 (give dinner time to settle). Then take my 2 hour reading at 8pm.

Should that be enough time for the walking to impact the blood sugar reading?
