With minor: Differences, your body can easily metabolize any sugar. Glucose, fructose and galactose are all simple sugars or monosaccharides. Sucrose, maltose and lactose are all compound sugars or disaccharides. Sucrose is formed as a combination of a molecule of glucose and one of fructose, and they are broken apart by enzymes. All are equal to 4 calories / gram. ...Read more
Baseline & fasting blood sugar is always normal. Blood sugar drops to 45/55 about an hour After eating a sugary meal. Is this dangerous?
Reactive hypoglycemi: This sounds like reactive hypoglycemia, essentially an overreaction of the pancreas to a large load of ingested sugar. This can usually be controlled by eating smaller meals more frequently and by limiting simple sugars, replacing them with complex carbohydrates and fiber. If symptoms persist despite this management, see doctor for blood testing for insulin levels and such. ...Read more

Normal glucose test. Can eating lots of sugar (cookies) and carbs in 3 days reverse normalcy and cause gestational diabetes? 108 glucose 19.6 BMI 25w
Short-term sugar OK: Secondary forms of diabetes (not the autoimmune insulin-requiring types), including the gestational type, are caused by cells become desensitized to insulin. This happens when Insulin levels are always high due to high sugar intake. It takes time; pregnancy just adds to the process. Three days of cake or girl scout cookies won't do anything if you weren't already heading that way. ...Read more

Also, there was no increase in insulin levels, unlike with aspartame, which is important regarding the issue of insulin resistance. Hope that helps. ...Read more
