It was a whopping 116. I couldn’t believe my eyes as this hasn’t happened in a long time. Lately my fasting numbers were fairly close to a 100, sometimes even 99 that was super normal for me. And now this.
I immediately jumped by the computer and went on googling. Guess what, a number of websites state that for those who are blessed with diabetes (type 2), fasting numbers should be under 130 mg/dl, while for those without it, 70-99. So my number was normal after all. Or maybe it was a bad strip.
So I went on about my usual morning business, having breakfast and drinking lots of water. 2 hours later my postprandial number is 102. Woo hoo!
A few words about my breakfast. I had cream of wheat that I thought was an innocent low carb food. However, after having taken a close look at the Nutrition Panel, I found out that it in fact, contains 24g of carbs for a serving size of 3 tablespoons. Here now, see for yourself.
Hmm. I never count how many spoons I eat, usually pretty much eyeball it. So I might have overdone a bit with that. Nevertheless, my postprandial number speaks for itself. Yay.
