I'd like to pose a follow up question, I was thinking, though unsure if this makes sense... but here goes.
When testing post meal glucose, if a non-diabetic eats a whole ton of carbs, like a whole pizza or a really big bowl of pasta, wouldn't the readings go off the charts, then settle down. So, in effect, it may be a false reading and cause unnecessary concerns. Can this happen?
How does one make the post meal glucose testing 'valid', is there a sense to what I'm thinking? Pls. correct me if I'm mistaken anywhere.
By the way, Metres mentioned a non-diabetic taking insulin as a profilactic. Is there any sense to doing this?
I mean, will this help ward off diabetes, maybe by strengthening the pancreas or easing the insulin burden on the beta cells?
