As someone else has pointed out that amounts to 84 mg/dL. That is
a very good value.
Type IIs often have a reactive phase after eating carbs. Kind of
like an underdamped suspension in a car. BG rises fast, falls below
baseline and then rises slowly to some steady-state value. I have
seen this in my own readings, and used to be part of the standard
description of type II.
