From Dublin, Ireland:

I am 24 years old, have had type 1 diabetes for 10 years, and I am currently on a sliding scale system of three Actrapid injections before meals and Insulatard at bedtime. What are the recommended postprandial readings half an hour after eating, an hour, and two hours?


In my practice, we only give patients cutoff values at two hours after eating, and those must not be higher than 180 mg/dl [10 mmol/L].
