In my efforts to eat healthy low-carb diabetic friendly nutrients, I had come across Flax Seeds recently. Based on the suggestion that website had provided, I'd powdered them and added a tablespoon to my oats porridge. My BG level, otherwise very normal with oats porridge shot up yesterday. So to I tried again this morning with only 1/2 tsp, again the BG levels were high. Looks like I do not have a good tolerance for flax seeds, I thought I would share this to the community.
Summary: As I've learnt from this community awhile back, each one of us are different and the way our DM responds. Mostly there is no one-size-fits-all…so "test…test…test" to understand the stimulus (exercise, meds, diet, stress etc) and its response (BG levels) to manage our DM.
All the best!
