I was just pointing out that the Joslin article explains, it is after about
10 - 15 minutes of exercising usually, that higher blood glucose appears but lowers afterwards after many hours. We normally end up with low blood sugars, sometimes dangerous. (been there) This is not unusual.
As far as what you are talking about
, it is as you explained it but that also appears to be a normal response for non-Diabetics people. So it is not dangerous since it doesn't last for very long. Complications occur when they have mostly high blood sugars for several? many? years. If they get a complication sooner, then something else is going on.
Non-Diabetics who eat high carb foods also get a high blood sugar. I know this because I was curious and I tested "everyone and everyone's dog". Some experiments at takeout/restaurants. Ha! Sure enough, their sugars went high. This was many years ago and still none of them have Diabetes. I also watched a UK Study Documentary years ago about
this subject. The blood sugar comes down within 2 hours. The GTT is another example, I think. Although, I've never had one.
As far as keeping blood sugars low...not much. It's mainly exercise, moderate(or low carb) foods, drinking plenty of water. Maybe's: Resistant starch. For Type 2's: Cinnamin, Termeric, Curcumin,
many more on the net which may or may not work.
How is your sister doing? Is she Type 2?
You are correct, some Doctors and Specialists shouldn't be. We had moved to a new area and I found a DR. closeby for our family. I asked him to give our Daughter some tests because she was having several symptoms. He refused and said that, "Children do not get auto-immune diseases". I was horrified! I then told him that I was dxd. with JUVENILE Diabetes at age 3, both of my brothers at age 4 and then me RA at age 24. My cousin JRA at age 10. The Doc did the tests and I got a new Dr. We have had more GOOD Dr./Specialists than dumb ones thankfully.
I do hope that you do not get Diabetes. It's a 24/7/365 PITA. It's not no fun and sometimes scary. No remissions. Other than that, it's not too bad, if the person can accept it.
