Yes. Checked it again at 3.5 hours after meal and it was 111. Completely satisfactory.
The blood sugar spikes are bad news. But spike high and linger there for hours is really bad news. The more glycation of cells the more likely eye problems, liver problems, heart and circulatory problems, the more cancer problems, dementia problems, etc.
It used to be thought (and still is with most doctors) that blood sugar was the only problem. Control the blood sugar and control the disease. But later more recent research shows that high insulin levels alone brings its own set of problems, even if blood glucose is tightly held in range with insulin and medication. To prevent or reverse the complications of diabetes it takes both proper blood sugar control AND low insulin levels. The latter part is still not addressed within much of the medical community.
