Still experimenting with what makes BG reading go up and down. Had a low reading earlier of 70 so had some Strawberry shortcake w/Cool Whip…and Green Tea. I only have desert when my BG reading is low. Sure enough it went up to 182. After napping in my recliner, I had my bedtime cookie. An hour later checked again. It was up to 214.
My Bad…I know 2 deserts back-to-back is a NoNo :-(
Read somewhere that Olive Oil reduced absorption of sugar into blood stream so thought I'd try that to see what happened. (Didn't hydrate or exercise as I usually would have) Took a tablespoon of Olive Oil. In 45 minutes my BG was reading 185.
What do you think. Have I learned something new or was this just a fluke? Has anyone else experimented with Olive Oil?
