Just found this forum today, hope to find good info.
Welcome to the DF twplunk. Isn't it annoying and aggravating when this happens? I've had the same problem. I guess our body's are not always the same. I had to go to the department store today, and I checked my bg's before leaving (147). I had nothing to eat while out shopping, was gone for approximately 2 hours, and I get home and check my bg's before dinner, 185? Now how in the heck...I didn't even eat anything! It just is not fair. Hope things continue to get better for you.Thanks for the welcome. I have been on so many different oral meds that would work for a while then not work. having better luck with Lantus and Apidra but still have days that even with same foods and same dosage @ same times BG goes high.
Shanny, if you could please explain use of milk thisle and coconut oil. Is it for diabetes control or something else, have seen their use by a few people on here.O this place is a TROVE of good information! Truckloads of knowledge, wisdom & experience among our members. Tell us more about yourself . . . how long have you had diabetes & how do you manage it?
These are both antioxidants . . . the milk thistle helps build up the liver & the coconut oil is a medium-chain triglyceride (as opposed to most other oils which are long-chain triglycerides) which combats atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis, as well as having many other health benefits, too many to describe here. Just Google benefits of eating coconut oil.Shanny, if you could please explain use of milk thisle and coconut oil.

You're in the right place - there are just some extraneous posts got between us . . . scroll on down & you'll find our conversation.oops how did I this get on this thread.
I use orange flavored metamucil in mine because I add a vitamin powder that is also orange flavored(just realized I didn't include the vitamin in original post) but you can use the unflavored kind and add a flavored yogurt just pop in blender for a minute or two. I just thought the coconut oil would add a little body along with the yogurt.Can you tell me more about your smoothie? What kind of fiber? And, I eat my coconut oil from the spoon like I did peanut butter as a kid. It's not bad tasting stuff. Some people put it in their coffee, but I'm not so sure how it will do in a cold beverage...
