This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
These spikes are indeed concerning and can cause more damage over time like kidney disease commonly.
Blood sugar should not go above 200 in the first place even after eating.
Easiest option to bring down sugar is to lower carb load in your meal --should be less than 25 grams per meal.
Eat more lean proteins and polyunsaturated fat.
Also drink plenty of fluids which helps to flush out sugar bringing it down.
If you are diabetic, then we suggest using a shortacting insulin insulin aspart or lispro 5 units before meals if blood sugar is above 200 but below 300 mg/dl.
What medications you are on currently?
