    I'm afraid that it will still be sausages and mushrooms for my breakfast tomorrow - and the nutribullet will remain in the cupboard as I...

  3. Resurgam replied to the thread Type 2 Worry about hypo at night.

    If you have sleep apnea, do you have a CPAP machine? I was issued with one some years ago now and it fixed the problem. I can't...

  4. Resurgam replied to the thread How to manage d2 when on a no carb diet and GP wants me on 3 different medication.

    The crispbreads will be about 2/3rds starch - so way over what I'd ever consider eating. The individual slices must be very light and...

  5. Resurgam replied to the thread Metabolic need for sugar.

    There are animals which hibernate and go through prolonged fasts - they have brains - so - there is an obvious question.

  6. Resurgam replied to the thread How to manage d2 when on a no carb diet and GP wants me on 3 different medication.

    Ah - yes - sorry - they did not appear in my search. I was wondering if it was an error such as deducting fibre when it was already net...

  7. Resurgam replied to the thread How to manage d2 when on a no carb diet and GP wants me on 3 different medication.

    The original rye Finn crispbread are 7.9 gm each according to the information I found - so half a dozen of those is almost 50 gm of...

  8. Resurgam replied to the thread Abnormally high HBA1c.

    You might soon find yourself in the enviable position of needing less medication - but don't try too hard - you have a really high...

  9. Resurgam replied to the thread After 3 months of binging...glucose spikes.

    weight dropping and increasing is not a good thing - that puts pressure on the heart - and probably on a metabolism just beginning to go...

  10. Resurgam replied to the thread Abnormally high HBA1c.

    Ah - type two diabetes is an inability to deal with carbohydrates, the starches and sugars. Protein and fat handling is not affected -...

  11. Resurgam replied to the thread Abnormally high HBA1c.

    That way of eating might explain a lot - swapping bread for something with more nutrition and fewer carbohydrates could make a big...

  12. Resurgam replied to the thread What can I do with greek yogurt?.

    If you can find a level of addition which you can cope with without spiking then it could be OK - oats seem to be one of the things you...

  13. Resurgam replied to the thread Back to basics.

    I suggest testing after eating any grain such as bread or porridge - there are other sources of fibre. I do have some loaves of Livlife...

  14. Resurgam replied to the thread Type 2 Dizziness and throwing up..

    As type two diabetics we can't deal with carbohydrate, sugars and starches, so it is a good idea to test after eating to see what you...

  15. Resurgam replied to the thread Abnormally high HBA1c.

    If you have been eating a diet rich in 'healthy' starch then that would explain the high Hba1c. It is not all about sugar, but the total...
