Re: Why do i fall asleep after eating?
Wow! I couldn't eat canned soups at all without quite a rise in blood sugar. And high bs always made me sleepy. I started off testing as soon as awake in a.m. , before eating, then 1/2 hour after start of meal, 1 hour, then 2 hours. If you find your sugars are high continue testing till 5 hours out. It takes that long for a high to go down in some cases. After you know what makes your sugars rise, you can go with testing casually during a day. Really look at what your are eating, it may be something that you cannot tolerate that is causing the sleepiness.
P.s. did you realize that tomato is a fruit? it gives quite a rise in a lot of diabetics.
