I usually take a big reading before eating and again about 45 minutes after I start eating.  There usually isn’t much change.  I typically start in the mid 70s to low 80s and by the time I take that second reading, it’s only up about 7 or 8 points. (Sometimes I take two readings in a row to verify, and they typically match or are within 1 or 2 points .). Yes, I know the goal is flat-line, but I haven’t been able to achieve it yet.

Anyway, tonight I decided to take a reading just shy of 3 hours after starting to eat.  It was 22 points higher than my pre measurement and 14 points higher than my one hour post.  The highest reading was 96, which isn’t bad in and of itself. I just don’t understand why it would still be rising after that first hour or so.  Isn’t it supposed to be dropping back down by then?  

My dinner was my only meal today (this is typical). It was two chicken thighs, 5 slices uncured bacon, 1/2 cup L.R. yogurt.  I also put 2 Tbsp inulin in a glass is filtered water to get some fibers.

NOTE:  I checked the bacon package, and it said it’s made with brown sugar, which I didn’t notice when I bought it.  However, it lists 1 gram sugars per 2 slices.   While I know labels aren’t 100%, I’d venture it’s at least close.   So, that would be approx. 5 grams sugar.  Could only (approx.) 5 grams sugar cause this issue?  I won’t be eating the bacon again, but still, seems like not enough sugar to cause an issue.  

Sorry my posts are are so long.  I always figure that responders may have questions, so I try to cover all the details, even the little stuff. 

Thanks.
