Hi! @Brunneria !
I am reading all the posts from the begginin, and I just have read this one of you.
I am taking metformin and the truth is that sometimes I feel that I lose glucose with Metformine. can be? what do you think?
Hi @Lamont D !
I am reading all the posts from the begginin.
Could you describe what says in the necklace and in the card in my wallet describing my condition and my treatment of it?
I was thinking doing the same
Not sure I understand what you mean about 'losing glucose with Metformin'.
Do you mean that your blood glucose is lower when you are taking Metformin?
Yes.it is what you say
Sorry for my bad english
My necklace is a medical necklace, I got it on Amazon.
It says Reactive Hypoglycaemia.
On other side is the medical sign of the Hippocratic oath.
In my wallet, the medical alert card share the usual personal details plus reactive hypoglycaemia and not to treat a hypo with glucose, glucagon or sweets or drinks.
Because of my good control, I have not really used it in an emergency!
Thank you for the explanation
And don’t worry about your English. We can always keep asking until we understand. So long as we get there in the end
One of the functions of Metformin is to reduce the amount of glucose released from storage in the liver.
This means that your body may be a bit slower to release glucose to get you out of a hypo.
Another function of metformin is to lower insulin resistance.
This means that your blood glucose levels may be a bit lower as a result.
I hope that helps
Thanks @Lamont D !
Hi @Brunneria !
What kind of cream do you put in coffe? I don t know the similar in Spain.. could you post a pic?
Thanks a lot!
Here in the UK our cream is labelled
‘single’ which is very thin
‘Double’ which is a bit thicker (I usually use this one)
And ‘extra thick’
But it is the carb content that is imprtant, not whether it is thick or thin.
If you look at the packaging on the cream you find in your shops, then just go for the one that las nice low carbs and that tastes nice.
Is the cream used to cook?
What do you think about popcorns homemade?
Are good for us?
I am preparing my meal for tomorrow at the office.
Can we eat lentils with vegetables?
Help me, please...
I've never had homemade popcorn, but if you try it, test yourself, afterwards.
Simply, yes, but as always check your blood sugar levels after.
There is good vegetables and bad ones, the general rule is any vegetables grown above ground is okay, below not!
Starchy vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, turnips, will raise your blood sugar levels enough to trigger the extra insulin, but by how much, it always varies to each of us.
Yes, you can use cream in cooking
Thanks @Lamont D
I will try with pepper, cucumber and onion.
And lentils are good for us?
Thanks a lot for anwer always!
Hi @Winnie53 , I have finally had my return appointment with the ophthalmologist today. I have struggled with the double vision for the last 6 weeks or so but over the last 4 days there has been a significant improvement. The last 6 weeks I have also been on the keto diet which really suits me with very few hypos and just a little imbalance when trying different foods. The blood test for myathenia gravis was negative and the doc couldn't find any reason for the double vision, so has discharged me! He didn't seem to think that my dietry changes had anything to do with the double vision or with the improvement. I however think it is an enormous coincidence that the DV started when I binged on carbs and is clearing up now I am on the keto diet. Odd pains, tingling and pins and needles in my left foot and right arm have also disappeared. This diet is definitely the way to go.
