Diabetes blood sugar before and after: tomatoes and cucumbers

diabetes blood sugar test

Blood sugar reading before eating: 93

This reading of 93 was basically first thing in the morning when I arrived at work. 60 seconds before this, my Braun blood glucose meter had me at 109. I think I’m going try a different brand of blood glucose meter and see if it’s any more consistent.

Blood sugar reading after eating: 135

This reading was about an hour after I finished my raw vegetables. 135 doesn’t seem like a bad number, but I was actually expecting a smaller increase in blood sugar. I hadn’t eaten or drank anything else but water.

Also, I eat something similar for “breakfast” just about every day at work. Sometimes I switch things up a little, but it’s usually cut-up vegetables just because it’s easy to do.
