    Early on this was a food we did fine with. Lately though it is sending BG through the roof. I've tried doubling carb count etc ... to no avail. He's been spiking severely every time recently. Maybe it's just a coincidence (he was getting sick when having yogurt, growth spurt while eating yogurt, puberty while eating yogurt, etc ...) but was just wondering if anyone else experienced the same. We pretty much know how most food affect him but this yogurt thing is new and driving me bananas. Thanks.

    Same here

    May 14 yr old daughter had a similar issue with milk..we stopped milk and its been 3 weeks. After leaving milk her blood sugar has almost falttened dring night times and does not go up much after meals (+/- 40) and we have reduced the basal and bolus ratio as well..
    So the mystery remains - what kind of a disturbance is milk causing to her ?

    actually, yes. We use Chobani Greek. My daughter loves it, but it's a nightmare.

    Try a non dairy yogurt and see if he reacts better. My preferred is coconut based "greek style". Soy varies a lot by brand. Almond based yogurt is generally weird and gross.

    By itself, no. With something else, like my daughter has been taking yogurt to school with her lunch, it's been a problem. Hd to add some crbs to the carb count.

    DS just recently (in the last week) started taking yogurt with his lunch and we've not seen any difference in his numbers after lunch. He's been taking the "Trix" yogurt in cotton candy flavor, so it's not organic or anything (and not very good for him), but I only got 2 packs (8 cups) and he knows that it was a treat. He also doesn't have a problem with milk, though, so it could be a dairy problem for your son?

    Yoghurt really does a number on K's BGs at breakfast (as, apparently, do other dairy products), but we see no spikes later in the day.

    Are you eating with added sugar? We eat a full fat organic greek yogurt with a little stevia and batko flavors strawberry. We bolus for the protein and carbs. No spike.

    Are you using the TAG system for blousing for protein?

    we have not had a problem with yogurt but they have always been to lower carb types and Greek style, or the regular tube type that overall are less than 12 carbs and with other food.
