Hi I finally got my blood sugar testing meter.

I noted before eating I was 99 mg/dL, which is apparently normal.

Two hours later I retested and I was 153 mg/dL

It states that it should be around 140 mg/dL

Was does this mean exactly.

I guess it is 'off' because of the prednisone I am on. Will this likely go down as I start to come off the prednsione?

Thanks
Samantha

It's probably the food you ate. Plantains are high in carbs and tortillas made with maize are, too. Although you only ate a small portion or a plantain, it's still enough (especially with a tortilla) to raise your blood sugar that high.

Please read the stickies at the top of this forum and also the link in my signature to a site which explains a lot about blood sugar.

Eating lower carb will give you much lower blood sugar results!

It's best to stay with fresh vegetables but not starchy ones like potatoes, corn or other root vegetables. Salads and leafy greens, other veggies are great. Zucchinis, bell peppers, mushrooms, cucumbers, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower to name a few are great. Meat, poultry and fish are really great. Eggs, cheese and milk products in moderation help with nutrition.

Food made with flour and sugar will drive your blood sugar very high. Natural sweeteners like honey, real maple syrup, agave, molasses, etc. will also send it very high.

So, do please do more research into the carb content of the food you are eating.
