2.5 milligrams? Or grams?

From our experience, the unit is measuring the vitamin C - as if it were glucose, so no, there is probably no extra glucose in the blood. But only if your units were incorrect. The insert to the manual for your unit should mention that it can react to large amounts of vitamin C in the blood.

@ofonorow

Sorry, meant grams!

So you think it’s possible to still slightly affect the meter meanings almost a day later?

Thank you.

Well a day later with no more vitamin C intake your blood levels should be around 1.5 mg/dl of vitamin C
A normal blood sugar is around 90 mg/dl - or almost 100 times the concentration of vitamin C.
So it is possible.
