No, its not ok. Whenever a blood sugar is 200 or more for more then 5 min it starts damaging your body. If this is a regular event, it has to be addressed. Is there a specific time of day it goes up? What type diabetes? What meds are being taken for it?

it is not the specific time of the day but rather the foods that one eats. starchy and high carb foods cause spike on sugar level.

I am aware of that, I was trying to find when this happened in relationship to what was eaten.

whenever you eat starchy n high carb foods, your sugar level is way higher.

I have taught diabetics for 40 yrs, I'm well aware of that. I was trying to figure out why it was 200 at all.

After eating starchy food, if i m sedentary
for 2 hours, my sugar level is 190 --- 240. if i stay physically active, the range will b 140 --- 180. i m not on any medication.

Hello thomas. I am confused. If you do not have diabetes, how are you able to test your blood sugars? In other words, why do you have a meter.

My friend, here, is correct that you should see a doctor. This is very dangerous to have such fluctuating levels. I have a friend who spent quite a few years not keeping track of her blood sugars. And she had a pump! She just liked to eat. I saw her recently and she is in mid forties and going blind! This is not something for a rainy day. Please have your sugars evaluated and see your doctor to save your sight and limbs. There are very bad effects that come from untreated diabetes. And when it is too late, you won't be able to get better. Do it for the people in your life who depend on you being here. Let us know what the doc says, ok?
