    Back at the gym. I'm on the newest type insulin DAFNE. Blood sugars are fine. I was wondering what is the best protein to take for building muscle?

    The best protein comes from lean meat. I guess you might mean one of the proprietary ones like Whey? In that case I cannot answer, sorry.

    hi., I'm well aware everyone's different but I use AMsport protein & BCAA with no/little effect on BG (I'm T2 metformin)
    BCAA even states on tub "suitable for diabetics" good tasting & reasonable prices too.. maxi muscle & PhD did affect my BG ..

    Thank you so much for your feed back. I will look into these proteins.
    First time using this app and it's great.
    Thanks again
