After a balanced meal of healthy fats, protein, and fiberous carbs, my 1 hour glucose was 95. But after 2 hours it was 118! Is that delay worrisome?

After a balanced meal of healthy fats, protein, and fiberous carbs, my 1 hour glucose was 95.  But after 2 hours it was 118!  Is that delay worrisome?

This is reassuring: regarding your glucose tolerance. Both results are low and do not suggest sugar or insulin problems. But it is unusual that the second hour value would be higher than the first. My first thought would be "lab error" and in normal circumstances I would suggest the test be repeated. But as both results were squarely in the normal range, I would offer you reassurance. Keep eating healthy:) ...Read more

Should i take two carbohydrates in one meal as i wanna loose weight?

Should i take two carbohydrates in one meal as i wanna loose weight?

Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates in moderation is fine. You should try to consume a greater proportion of lean protein, vegetables, and fruit as opposed to carbohydrates. A meal consisting solely of bread, rice, and pasta is not very good. Just put together a balanced meal from all food groups. Cutting out carbs all together will likely make you lose more weight faster, but that is a bit extreme and not necessary. ...Read more

When i eat a high carbohydrate meal i get tachycardia. I can't eat cake, a hamburger, pizza nothing. If I do my heartrate s 150 BPM why?

When i eat a high carbohydrate meal i get tachycardia. I can't eat cake, a hamburger, pizza nothing. If I do my heartrate s 150 BPM why?

I don't know: I can't answer your question but you should be checked out. Note that hamburger and pizza are not high carb meals. A holter recording can easily determine the type of tachycardia you have. Atenolol is a good drug but if it's not working, there are many others, depending on the cause. If you have frequent or incessant psvt, a radio-frequency ablation should be considered. You live near the mayo! ...Read more

Can you let me know how many carbs per meal is good for a diabetic to eat?

No specific number: The low glycemic diet is what you need. Eat a diet rich in green vegetables and hard fruits. One that is low in animal saturate fats is also good. Eat 80% of each meal in plant and 20% animal. Get protein and good fat like olive oil coconut oil or nuts at each meal. This will "buffer" the effect of any complex carbohydrates or sugars that naturally occur. This balance will negate carb counting. ...Read more

Pp bg (140 or less @ 1hr) w/ moderate carbs 40g/meal. Meter average 109 from day. Fbg 109. A1c still 6.6 -2000 mg mtfmn. Night bg spike keeps avg up?

Pp bg (140 or less @ 1hr) w/ moderate carbs 40g/meal. Meter average 109 from day. Fbg 109. A1c still 6.6 -2000 mg mtfmn. Night bg  spike keeps avg up?

See below: When do you take the metformin? It works by blocking sugar production by the liver, which process occurs primarily at night; so taking it at supper or bedtime seems best. However, your fasting bg is 109 by your report; so liver's production seems adequately controlled. Perhaps u should check ppbg 2 hours after meal to make certain it isn't spiking. Daily exercise also helps lower sugar levels. ...Read more

The amount of specific macronutrient (protein, fat, carbo) needs varies based on genetics, stressors and level of physical activity. You have matched you calories to your current physical conditions and thus have success. ...Read more
