I have been diagnosed for four months and my doctor feels that it's ok to spike as long as you come back to normal by your next meal. What I'd like to know is: after you eat is it OK to go to 250 or 300 as long as you come back down in a relatively short time, like 3 hours. I'm like a roller coaster, probably because I'm thin and very active. I started with an A1c of 11.7 and was 7.8 at my first retest. My doctor said this was phenomenal and the most I could have come down in a three month period. I rarely go too low, because I use a continuous glucose monitor (the best thing in the world), so I know that's not what's giving me a good A1c. Could someone give me their opinion on this? Thanks so much.
