From Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA:

What happens to the blood sugar level when a couple of cookies are eaten? How long does the sugar stay in the body? How long before I rid myself of the "treat"?


It depends on the amount of carbohydrate and fat in the cookie. The carb will break down quickly in the first hour but the breakdown will last longer because of the fat content. The best way to answer your question is to check your blood sugar before eating the cookie and every hour until your blood sugar returns to normal.
