Re: Okay, so what am I doing wrong ?
Your readings don't look abnormal at all. You are checking after eating. A nondiabetic can have postprandial (after eating) readings up to 180, although most people are around 140. If your A1c and fasting are fine, you don't need to worry yet. It's possible you are developing some insulin resistance, but given the amount of carbs in the food you are eating (oatmeal is high carb), your numbers are not at all bad. The reason you had a rise in blood sugar 2.5 hours after the chinese food is due to the fat in the food slowing the absorption of the carbohydrate. It's not abnormal.
