Hey I'm new to the forums! I had posted a question on Diabetic Connect on Facebook and I was asked to share it here! So here goes! (be gentle on me)
I have type II Diabetes, and I take a host of vitamins for other maladies I suffer from. One of those was Vitamin B1. According to the internet, vitamin B1 helps the body break down Carbs into energy, which we all know is sugar. It is said that Vitamin B1 does not contribute to diabetes.
That all being said, If your body doesn't use all those broken down Carbs, can it lead to higher BG levels??
Here's what I've found so far, I dropped from 250mgs of B1 a day to 100mgs, my numbers BG numbers dropped 20 to 40 points almost immediately!! I'm testing this theory, I've had loads of icing on my nephews cake, and the local fairs are helping me spike carbs and sugars (funnel cake!!) Anyway, the last two days I completely cut out Vitamin B1, My Numbers are awesome!!! Well within normal range!!
What's your thoughts?? I'd love to hear them!
