Q: "does the food you eat the day before especailly at supper time affect your levals in the AM"?
A: Loads of sugary pop, starchy veg, casseroles, breads, pies, etc. and lots of food in general would DEFINITELY take some time to metabolize. 127 is a little bit on the high side for fasting but totally explainable by the meal (IMHO). Probably not the best thing to eat the eve before a test
For me personally, even a supper high in protein & fat with moderate carbs would see it affect my BGLs for the next 24 hours, easy. Does your neighbour have a BGL meter? Maybe you could test him on yours, Linda? Have him eat something sensible, fast for 12 hours, a do a fasting test on your meter. At the very least, it could give him an idea of what he might be discussing with his doc next week, not to mention a piece of data he could take to his doc.
(Nice to hear from you, Linda! Hope all is well with you?
