Make a day curve? What is that?
A day curve is like measure several values during the day to get an
impression of the effectiveness of her system.
That still doesn't explain it. I log all of my numbers into a log book.
There is no curve that I can see.
A string of measurements taken at intervals in mathematical jargon is
said to constitute a curve. Technically speaking straight lines,
jagged lines, and waves are all different kinds of curves. Curve
fitting is the process of discovering what underlying kinds of pattern
best fit the data, and curve fitting will sometimes find that the kind
of curve is a straight line.
How long does it take to get rid of the sugar peak after a meal, how
is that peak, and what causes the peak and the dip that follows
thereafter? Do you get hypo's?
What makes you think there is a peak? She only had a reading of 101
don't even know how that came about.
If that was a fasting reading (as it might well have been) it wasn't
necessarily a peak of any kind.
You seem to be unaware that there is really a BG peak after every meal,
just want to know how high it went, and how long it takes to go away.
There might be a peak for diabetics. But she hasn't been diagnosed with
Type 2 diabetics eating an ordinary "undiabetic" diet will have post
meal peaks. So will prediabetics or "borderline" diabetics. So will
quite a sizeable fraction of the population currently considered to be
suffering from no impairment of their blood glucose control.
What (among other things) is diagnostic of diabetes is certain sizes
and timings of BG post meal peak.
That's true, but... AFAIK she has had just one reading of 101. That is not
enough to diagnose anything! Which is why I think she needs and
