If it doesn't spike you, you hit the jackpot, Mark . . . Nature's Own has eliminated HFCS from all its products. They even have one that's sugar-free, which isn't to say the the wheat won't spike you, but they're trying. This double-fiber is about as low-carb as any I've seen. All you can do is try it, test & see how big a spike you get. I think I'd go for half a sandwich to start with, since one slice is often okay, but two slices will spike us.

I'll have to try it...I've only taken my 3rd metformin, so I am sure I still have a few weeks before the meds even kick in. So should I experience more "peaks and valleys" until the medicine starts doing its job ? I ate a bowl of cheerios earlier tonight and jumped from 146 to 202.

I dunno...

We've tried several Nature's Own varieties, and I've never had any complaint with the flavors . . . they make good bread. But some of it still spikes me, and I can't leave it alone if it's in the house!

Yeah, Cheerios aren't the best thing for us, unfortunately. Most all grains cause a problem, so all we can do is test and see if the damage is within tolerable limits. Anything that spikes me over 140 gets scratched from the menus. You prob'ly had milk on your Cheerios too, and that contributed to the spike as well - loaded with lactose, another bona fide sugar.

Your metformin IS working, but it just hasn't reached maximum blood levels yet. It works in the background - just coaxing our cells to accept the insulin that's already available.

Is a "spike" bad if you drop down ? 2 hrs ago, I was 202, an hour after my cheerios, and now at 161. I don't know what all the numbers or the terms mean yet. I don't even know what is considered a "spike"...but I'll learn.

This is something we kinda decide for ourselves - just how strict we want to be . . . my target range is 80-130, and lately I've been bouncing out of it every time I turn around. But those are the parameters I've set, and I will continue to eliminate the foods that send me above 130 or 140. Doesn't matter if I drop back or not - going over 140 is causing organ damage, and my old eyes can't stand any more abuse, let alone my kidneys and cardiovascular system.

So what I consider a spike may be altogether acceptable to you - it's a very personal disorder! I consider 30 points a spike. Patients who aren't on insulin are kinda behind the eight-ball, because once we go high, our only recourse is to run around the block about ten times to work it off. Metformin does good work stabilizing us, but it can't compensate for continued carb consumption.
