    Default When to test?

    Hi all... newly diagnosed, first night testing. I had dinner at 6.30 tonight and now want some sugar free ice cream and dessert an hour later at 7.30... do I have to wait another hour do the test, then have my dessert? Or can I have my dessert then check 2 hours after that or will it skewed?
    Thanks

    You should test 2 hours after your meal (dinner in this case) and then have supper after that.

    Its better to wait the full 2 hours after your main meal. I was told I can eat half way through if I absolutely had to but they preferred I waited the 2 hours. If you do eat still take your bloods after the 2 hr mark from dinner but note what you ate because it will be skewed

    Thanks all (and for that pdf too) I'm flying a bit blind with it all at the moment. Need to see a dietician.
