You have to be careful with foods with large amounts of sugar. At first they make your sugar go high. And then you crash. I'm not at all surprised that you had a 78 after having a Sprite. You also need to pair carbs and protein, to keep your sugar stable. But watch out for fat. It will keep your carbs from being absorbed quickly enough. I am a Type 2 diabetic, and I remember one time I had a slice of cheesecake at a birthday party. That was stupid, because all the fat kept the carbs from being processed fast enough, so my body ran out of carbs and I crashed.

What are your fasting numbers? Fasting numbers are a solid indicator of GD.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
