I am prediabetic. I notice that my blood sugar on a CGM spikes more on foods that it used to not spike on since I removed all the fruit and other carbs that normally it spikes on. Can anyone direct me to information that might help me understand this and what to do about it? Another weird thing is if I exercise between meals when my blood glucose is good, the exercise makes it go up. Info on why and what to do to keep it on a nice even run? Seems the more I try to focus and do everything right a new leak springs! Which supplement would help with the seemingly extra sensitivity. I can have a good blood sugar reading 30-40 minutes after eating and yet if it has gone up more than 18 pts from my pre-meal level I get overwhelmingly sleepy. Is there something I can do to not experience this sleepy feeling. Would one of the supplements help with this?

Insulin resistance is a canary in a coal mine.

The concept of insulin resistance is relatively easy to understand, but determining precisely who is insulin resistant is more complicated. The relationship between glucose and insulin is quite complex and involves the interaction of many metabolic and regulatory factors. The hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp technique is the most scientifically sound technique for measuring insulin sensitivity, and it's against this standard that all other tests are usually compared.

I found the diet part quite silly, to suggest to gorge on flesh. Everyone knows that one can drop our rates of diabetes by over 50% by avoiding animal foods. That's been shown over and over in so many studies and is mainstream knowledge now.

5 out of 5 stars

I'm interested if anyone knows of a combo of these supplements? My 38 year old daughter is diabetic with high blood pressure, obesity and several other symptoms listed in the article. She recently had a heart attack!!!! She's in the process of figuring how to have a healthier lifestyle. I want to send her these supplements and I know the fewer pills she has to swallow the more likely she'll stick with it.

Hi Art,

Is GSPE the same thing as GSE (grape seed extract)? I want to make sure I get the correct thing. TIA

An MD has a channel on YouTube called, “Beat Diabetes”. He's an endocrinologist, I think. He sells supplement formulations for diabetics.
