You would think that ice cream is strictly off limits if you have diabetes. Up until eating this thing, I hadn’t eaten ice cream of any kind since before my diabetes diagnosis over eight months earlier.
Keep in mind that this is just ONE type of ice cream bar (and not a very good one, just for the record). I don’t think you can realistically expect these results to be consistent with ice cream bars of other flavors and brands.
Blood sugar reading before eating: 83
This reading of 83 was late at night. Knowing that your blood sugar can fall a lot while sleeping, I want to bump myself up a little before going to bed.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 94
This reading was about an hour after I finished my ice cream.
Hey ice cream … WHAT THE HELL??!! My blood sugar only went up 11? This calls for a re-do, so I ate the other half of this ice cream bar on a different night.
Blood sugar reading before eating: 90
This reading of 90 was at night, several hours after eating a couple of tacos.
Blood sugar reading after eating: 104
This reading was about an hour after I finished the other half of this ice cream bar. The results are basically the same as when I ate the first half!
Meh. Oh well. Should I try eating a whole ice cream bar and see what happens? That sounds like a horrible idea, but it’s tempting!
