AloeSvea if I had a stronger ability to smell and taste food, I'd be a foodie. My husband is a huge help. He helps me adjust recipes. I love food. How do you use the A1c and C-peptide? Do you have them done together or separately? And when do you do the c-peptide? I've never had the latter test so have no idea how much insulin I'm producing. My last fasting insulin was 3.8. Right now I'm trying to build more root vegetables into my diet in small amounts with meals in the hope of forming a mutually beneficial partnership with my gut bugs. I also am stuck in the low to mid range of pre-diabetes and trying to lose weight. It will be easier when we're on the other side of berry and cherry season. Glad to hear you're wearing your blue blockers. I need to ask my husband to order me a pair.
