I have noticed that the last 2 mornings, when I put 1/2 srv of blueberries on my cereal, my blood sugar was way down from the fasting blood sugar. (Tues.- fasting was 125, 2hrs post brkfst 99; today fasting 126, 2 hrs. post brkfst 103). When I had the same brkfst, but with peaches, my sugar went up, but was still under 140. Is it the blueberries that are making the difference? I didn't do anything else differently on any of those days.
Also, if I am to eat a 15-30 gr carb snack a couple hours after a meal (if not eating within 4 hrs) to keep my sugars level, at what range am I trying to keep them? The range of under 140 (since that is the same amount I am allowed at a meal), or closer to the fasting range? Kind of confused.
Also, I seem to have a liver "dump" every night. I thought it was because I was having a glass of wine, but it seems to happen whether or not I have the wine. Is there any way to prevent this?
Last question...if I eat too many carbs at one meal, but my levels are around 113 2 hrs. after, can those extra carbs affect my blood sugar after my next meal?
I know I am asking alot of questions, but I hope someone can give me some info on these. Thanks
