Hi Robert, I hope I can help with some of your questions. #1 and #2. Some people can eat apples with no problem; others can't. The best way to find out is eat an apple and then test your blood sugar. You might do well if you eat some peanuts or cheese with the apple. The protein might help offset a spike if you have one. Again. You'd have to test. #3 and #4. When you test your blood sugar, you're supposed to time it from when you begin
eating. I'd time it from when you eat the apple while waiting for the dinner to be ready. I'd test 2 hours and 3 hours from the time you begin eating. #5. No it wouldn't be the total of the two. Example: if you ate an apple at 6:00 while waiting for dinner in 10 minutes, and then ate your dinner, I think you should test your blood sugar at 8:00 and 9:00. (Well, some people, like me, would also test at 7:00 just to see ......) With the figures you give, it would more likely be somewhere between the two: somewhere between 111 and 119, I'm guessing, but if you do this, please let us know, ok? (When I was reading your question, I thought it was like a math question ... if a train leaves Cleveland going 50mph and another train leaves Philadelphia going 45 mph.....)
#6. I haven't the slightest idea!
