I agree about okra being great for blood sugar. Usually when I've eaten anything breaded my blood sugar went up to 190's or so (prediabetic) but I can eat breaded okra (frozen breaded okra from the freezer section-it's breaded with cornmeal) and my blood sugar is around 99 or so which is amazing. So far I've tested it an hour after eating and every 45 minutes or so after that up to 3 hours after a meal. Sometime I do plan on testing up to 4 hours after a meal just to make sure a late spike isn't happening like it does with pasta (with pasta the blood sugar spike for me happens around 4 hours after the meal.)

I had been battling with my diabetes 2 for a period of time. I started with two medications, metformin & glipizide. The Januvia and Invokana was added. Still my sugar readings never go down as supposed 110 fasting. The lowest I could have was 130 to 175 fasting. Then it would be in the upper 200s to 300 after eating during the day. I have tried Apple cider but it hurt my stomach because of gerd and reflux. Too much acid. Then, I found this article about OKRA. Three weeks after doing the regimen, my sugar readings went down to 110 without fasting. This is what I am doing I cut both ends of the four okras and make a single slit of each and place it in a glass of water overnight. Then, take the water in the morning before taking anything. Lately, I place around 20 pcs of Okra in a gallon of water and place in the refrigerator. This is good for a week drink. It works for me. Rhebs
