I learned something weird last night about my bs. 2 things, really.
First, my medication is dangerous as far as bs goes. Mostly for diabetics on medication, but it is affecting mine to a degree.
2nd, about 25 years ago, when I tested 4+ x's a day, and wrote it all down in those little books that come with your test kit (this is back when the kits were huge, and before you touched the strip to the blood. We had to have a big droplet back then, and drop it onto a round spot on the strip. If too little, it errored out and you had to do it again. Way different these days!).
What I learned was that spaghetti was the ultimate meal for me. It took my bs up higher than other foods, and slooooowly dropped it back down over hours and hours time. Perfect for a hypoglycemic like myself.
I figured out that it was the pasta, mixed with meat sauce, and the oil to cook it in.
Well, last night I made something completely different but with the same components. I cooked onions - same as for spaghetti - then ground meat with freshly chopped garlic, and added some small bits of greens that were in the freezer. Meanwhile, I had cooked elbows.
I added the slightly undercooked (on purpose.) elbows to the meat and onions, and cooked them together in my electric skillet for a while, to meld the flavors, finish cooking the pasta, and kind of brown it, but not make it hard. It was tasty!
Anyway, when I tested my bs 2 hrs. later, the numbers were exactly the same amount higher than norm as the one when I ate spaghetti and tested, 25ish years ago! What are the chances of that?
When I got up this morning, I felt great. Not hypoglycemic at all, so tested, and found that my bs was still decent. That never happens.
