I am wondering if I eat pasta alfredo and within the first hour postprandial I start my exercises (which always reduce my BG significantly), if the effect of the pasta on my glucose still impact my A1c in the long run? I realize one time would not, but I'm talking about perhaps having pasta alfredo at lunch maybe once a week. I no longer take oral meds or insulin for my T2 diabetes, and have learned to control my diabetes with diet & exercise. I gone from an initial A1c of 12.46 to 5.73.
You ask a good question! The answer depends in part,on how high the pasta Alfredo raises your blood glucose, and how much your blood glucose drops with exercise. Since you mention that your blood glucose drops “significantly” with exercise, it’s probably unlikely that your A1C will increase much from eating this dish just once a week. If your blood glucose levels are within target most of the time (at least 80% of the time), then it stands to reason that your A1C will remain in target, as well.
