exactly one year ago i  was taken into hospital with breathing problems i was diagnosed with a, b.o.o.p in the lung with alll tests as you get in hospital i also was found to be a diabetic they stated me on novomix 30 insulin total of 80 units per day  after spending 3 weeks in hospital i found this all just too much well after a few months on continuious hypo's i was evenually taken off insulin as they told me as my lung was healing my pancreas was starting to work again a few more months passed on and now they have me on only 1 tablet per day just to cover my evening meal The 28 january last year i got out and now i feel great i read something about  a gi diet whether or not your a diabetic it can still raise your sugar levels this is why i'm wandering am i one or not during the day my sugars never rise above 6.5 or 7.0 but after evening meal checking after 2 hours there just making it below 10

Derek,
Your numbers look like you could be to me. A normal will get their sugars back down within 2 hours after a meal. Yours are still high. What does your doctor say?

Seems as though I heard that chocolate doesnt' raise your blood sugar as fast as potatoes... Partly because of the fats that make up chocolate. (All I remember is that we aren't supposed to carry a chocolate bar for low blood sugar attacks because the sugar is very slowly absorbed from chocolate...) The starches in potatoes (mmmm! I love 'em!) act like almost straight sugar because they absorb so quickly into the blood stream. I have this probem with rice as well. I'd try adding a load of vegetables to dinner and cut back a bit on the potatoes. You may even sprinkle your veggies with herbed olive oil (my favorite is garlic/tarragon that I make myself) in place of butter. The fats tend to make you feel more satisfied, enhance fat soluable vitamin absorption and smooth out the sugar high because they slow carb absorption. You might just be prediabetic... Can't hurt to be careful with the carbs. Hope this helps.

what would you call a full diabetic after 2 hours after they eat a meal what would there sugars be if they didn't take medication for it i'm in the uk now so the reading would be somewhere between 4 and 30
