blood sugar

  • Anonymous ORIGINAL POSTER
    My dr said to test in pairs, so I do...but i can't remember what he said was an appropriate change in my sugar after the 2 hr mark to see if i ate too much carbs...I have DM2 and take janumet xr 50-1000. What is the acceptable range per meal before I have to reduce the carbs in that meal?

Ask your doctor which of the value sets you are to use. You should also ask your doctor for a recommendation for a dietitian to see.
