I eat the best steel cut oatmeal with just water. No matter what I do, quantity eaten or time of morning, my blood sugar will go from 110 upon wakening to 165 two hours after eating oatmeal. I do not understand. Can anyone suggest a substitute low card breakfast that is not all eggs. Thanks.

I guess my question comes down to "why let the blood sugar get to 160?"
I agree exercise brings mine down as well but why let it get there.

unless someone develops a unique medication, it's going to get that high because we're diabetics.

Well that is true but I know if I do not eat oatmeal my BS stays under 120.

I can control it by eating eggs or even beef jerky for breakfast. In that case

my BS stays in a range of 90 to 120 all day.  It just annoys me that the first

thing a dietitian or doc says is eat oatmeal.

I eat the low sugar oatmeal from Quaker.  I only have one packet.  Very small amount.  Sometimes I consume one packet for dinner with 4 strawberries.  My sugar  hours later after consuming was still at 120 reading.  I will also have one packet just before I go to work after I have checked my blood sugar.

I eat non-sugar oatmeal. That is what annoys me - it is supposed to me the healthiest

I have come to understand that everybody reacts to carbs in different ways, sometimes

violently different ways.

Still searching an alternative oatmeal.

You are correct. What is good for you may not be good for someone else.
