Thanks Ruth
I am working with my PCP to get to the bottom of this peripheral neuropathy, just so far it's being hard to track down. I started testing BS just because the high OGTT has been the only abnormal test. I guess there are several other things that could be causing it. Gluten intolerance, small vessel disease..........
Anyway, I do exercise most days, have lost a few pounds and limit my carbs.
I'm going to try to attach a couple of pictures to show how my BS goes when eating carbs versus low carbs. (they are a little large, hope they go)

I really like that graphic depiction cowman! I may have to do something like that 'cause it sure points to the role carbs play in our diet.

Wow!

Hi Cellis,

You certainly do better with less carbs. That is great!! It is also great that you are exercising.

You are doing a great job in keeping your diabetes under control.

Do you prefer to be called Cellis or cowman?

Ruth

I will answer to any name you good people say. My name is Calvin, my email is normally "cellis" and my handle Cowman.

I am a bit confused about why I seem to be really sensitive to high carb foods, but my fasting glucose is OK, and my A1c is OK.

Cowman, I have been successful avoiding fast acting carbs, and eating mostly food with slower acting carbs. I studied the glycemic index and found which types of foods will raise my levels very fast, and which types raise them more slowly. I am now avoiding cereal and milk, white bread, rice and a few other foods. I eat only a half cup of potatoes or pasta. This helps me keep my one and two hour post meal numbers much lower.

I've just learning about how different foods affect my BS. Only been testing and recording results a few weeks. It's strange how different people react differently . These are hard on me; potato soup, oatmeal, biscuits and gravy,
blueberries and potato chips :-(
I do OK with small amounts of whole grain bread (but rarely eat it), non-starchy vegetables and small portions of fruit. I'm probably less than 60 carbs per day now. I might have eaten 300 before!

Thanks for the encouraging advice.

Cowman
