Tried a little experiment yesterday.
Poached eggs on sourdough to see if the toast (being processed carbs) might affect my blood sugars.
Well, of course they will, but I’m wondering if the body can cope and have competently dealt with the sugar by the two hour mark. Being just two small slices I was wondering of this is something I can enjoy without too much of an effect.
As an HbA1c test averages out how much sugars you’ve had in your blood for the previous 3 months, this will add to that measure.
And yes, two hours later my blood sugar reading is still 8.0 mmol/L!
According to Diabetes UK, it needs to be below 7.8 mmol/L:
So this kinda confirms the Type 2 diabetes status, but we’re working on it being lower than that.
As per my previous post, we may be able to reverse this but not cure it. That’s fine, it simply means I need to remove ALL processed carbs from my diet ALL the time.
I can live with that! (pun not intended!)
