Diabetes blood sugar before and after: bananas, carrots, and Korean pear

diabetes blood sugar test before and after eating

Blood sugar reading before eating: 153

This reading of 153 was actually after I had already eaten most of the pear, and it wasn’t even a whole pear. Korean pears are big, like the size of a grapefruit, so half a Korean pear is much bigger than half of most green or yellow pears.

I forgot to check my blood sugar before i started eating, so it’s probably fair to say that the Korean pear was already causing my blood sugar to climb.

The can of soup is there for scale. This Korean pear is on the small side.

Blood sugar reading after eating: 192

This reading was about an hour after I finished my office breakfast of bananas, pears, and carrots.

So it already seems likely that the Korean pear was causing my blood sugar to bug out. I wonder what did the rest of the damage? I’m gonna guess the bananas. I guess I’ll have to eat these things separately to unravel this web of intrigue.
