yup, sounds like alot of carbs tehrer, had your yogurt and salad dressing had fat, you would have been better, but the canned sauces are full of sugars. gotta watch taht carefully. Always check ingredients.

I know this was posted a while ago, but I'm a nervous poster and this seemed a good place to start.

I'm pretty new at this, but have stayed in my goal range for a few months. What you're describing, is that one meal? That sounds like a whole days worth of carbs for me. My goal is 30-45 grams of carbs total per meal. 6oz of yogurt on its own, depending on the brand, can be 30+ grams. Add in the pasta (starch), jarred sauce (probably has sugars and carbs), and blueberries (good for you, but fructose is sugar too), and it's not surprising you jumped.

Most insurance companies will pay for diabetic education classes (but you have to get your doctor to set it up and might need to call the insurance each class to verify it is billed correctly). It's helped me a lot.

I am kind of panicking here. I took my reading pre-dinner and then 2 hours later with 151 point spike. I was careful at dinner. 1C whole wheat pasta, 1C Traditional Prego, mixed greens, 1/2C tomatoes with FF Italian dressing (2 tbls), 6oz plain FF yogurt, 1 C blueberries. I went from 108 to 259. I've only been diagnosed and tracking for about a month, but this is my biggest spike ever. It's so disheartening. I'm trying so hard to get a handle on this.
