Can a 'normal' person record, even just once every now and then, a non-normal b/s level? I have much to learn about our affliction but was wondering, if, say, a normal person at Easter had a day of wolfing down chocolate and drinking soft drink, could they get an out-of-normal reading? Like, mostly over 10 mmol/L over here is 'undesirable'. Or is the normal pancreas strong enough to sort out big spikes like that?
You can't get a certain brand of English lemonade in Australia. I loved a brand called R-Whites. Recently I found a place that sells it. Thankfully, the English measure for a can is still about 330ml (rather than the 375ml here). I simply couldn't resist it and drank a can, with a packet of Twiglets (another English favourite, virtually unobtainable here). Now, that was a very naughty thing to do, and my only justification was to see just what sort of score I'd get. As it was, I scored 7.9 after 1 hour, then 8.9 after the second. Within range but high. So this set me thinking about how normal people react to (admittedly much greater) levels of sugar in a short burst. I'm still getting higher scores in the second hour, well, occasionally, which puzzles me. Normally I take a reading after 3 hours and everything seems to be much better. Odd...
