Re: GD: lowering fasting blood sugar levels?

I got mine to be lower by having a glass of 1% milk and a handful of almonds. I got an 81 this morning. This snack was at 10pm, and was preceded by a snack at 8pm. It is so hard to make myself eat so much though. I really don't like shoving food in when I'm not hungry!

Previously I had been drinking whole milk and my numbers were higher. I will try the same low fat milk thing tonight and see if the numbers stay low or if it was a fluke! LOL!

That is weird if it's the milk bc they have the same carb count. Either way, 81 is good!

It is weird, but I was told that fat can cause blood sugar to rise over time (take longer to be digested), so I though I would give it a try LOL! We'll see if it works again tonight!

Re: GD: lowering fasting blood sugar levels?

Are you drinking enough water? Drinking water can help lower your glucose level too.
