    The only way to know how it effects your BG levels is to test .Have you got a meter ? Carrots cause my bloods to go high

    Like @carty carrot juice sends my bg too high.
    Although it is good in green smoothies with other veg and fibre.

    I am vary wary of ANY juices, even veg ones - because my meter tells me to be.
    On the other hand, I find veg and fruit smoothies are usually fine, so long as the fruit is berries.
    The reason the smoothies work is, I think, because you get all the veg fibre, which prevents a quick bg spike.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Guys Love the Carrot Juice but i have stopped since posting this and taken heed to your replies, I am getting pretty depressed though to be honest because i am also on warfrin for my blood and have also to watch out for Vitimin K foods, i really seem to have nothing left, cant even look forward to meals anymore lol.
    Thanks for your replies
