What EXACTLY I Eat to Keep Blood Sugar Low
I show just what I consume in a day to keep my blood sugar low. What I normally do from the moment I get up to the minute I go to sleep and what devices I make use of to maintain my blood sugar in the optimal variety.
If you are an insulin dependent diabetic person this is a need to watch video for you. All of us battle with handling blood glucose levels and I make certain you will certainly have the ability to relate with the challenges I handle throughout my day as a person dealing with diabetic issues.
Look Into Gvoke HypoPen ® at www.GvokeGlucagon.com
GVOKE is a prescription medicine made use of to deal with really reduced blood sugar (severe hypoglycemia) in grownups and youngsters with diabetes ages 2 year and above. It is not understood if GVOKE is secure as well as reliable in kids under 2 years of age.
Do not utilize GVOKE if: you have a lump in the gland on top of your kidneys (adrenal gland) called a pheochromocytoma, as it may create a considerable increase in hypertension; you have a tumor in your pancreas called an insulinoma, as it might trigger low blood sugar level; or if you dislike glucagon or any type of other inactive component in GVOKE.
GVOKE might trigger various other major adverse effects, such as: Significant skin rash– GVOKE can cause a major skin breakout in certain individuals with a lump in their pancreatic called glucagonoma; Severe allergic reaction– Call your doctor or get medical aid right away if you have a significant allergy including rash, difficulty breathing, reduced blood pressure.

This was very good. Thank you for sharing this.
Cool recipe thanks.
Perfect sugars. Congratulations. I am also a type 1 diabetic. Could you tell me the app you use to calculate insulin doses based on carb counting?
So you know I’ve had 6 different food people tell me 6 different things. Then one told me I should eat what I want so I do. Dexcom g7 is working great. I’m type 2. If I have lows I have double stuff oreo and peanut butter and milk
Great video. I am also T1D. Really good to show people around you how to use the hypo pen, and to have one that doesn’t need to be set up with a separate needle/syringe. The dinner meal suggestion looks great. I made kitchari with zucchini the other day and it worked surprisingly well for my blood sugar!
I began wearing a CGM recently… after a hot shower, I spike to 195-200 that lasts for 30-60 min. is that normal or is the sensor becoming overheated?
my average is normally 125-135 currently.
It’s basically 1 unit of bolus to 10gram of carbs. I’m not on a pump but that’s how I dose mine (I’m type 1)
What work do you do now? Are you retired?
Heat from a shower should not typically have any affect on the CGM ability to read accurate numbers. The most typical response I’ve seen from people, and this includes me, is that a hot shower makes their blood sugar drop, especially if they have insulin on board. The main reasons is because the heat will expand muscle tissue allowing more insulin access to cells faster. That said everyone is different and I have seen others comment that their numbers have gone up, like you are saying. To find out more details you can perform an experiment. Right after you get out of your shower, dry off your hands and check your numbers using a normal finger stick meter, then compare that to your CGM reading. That will give you some insight as to if the CGM is being affected by the shower.
I am not diabetic but I had some considerable insulin insensitivity (no longer) and I wear CGM to conduct experiments on myself.
On days I am in keto or fasting I eat zero carbs for any practical purpose. Body can create enough sugar on its own to sustain itself. My blood sugar remains pretty much constant.
On days I eat carbs I noticed that the way you incorporate carbs into your diet will very highly influence the effect on blood sugar.
Eating/drinking naked sugars in the morning is pretty much the worst thing you can do — blood sugar spikes immediately.
I can 300g of carbs (carbs, not food containing carbs) and I get only 1/3rd of the blood sugar increase as eating a handful of grapes. For example, I can eat 300g of sourdough bread and large portion of hummus containing as much carbs and it does not register much. The secret? I eat some cheese (protein+fats). There is also lot of olive oil in the hummus and there is a lot of lemon juice. Protein, fats and acids each separately have effect of blunting the sugar spike and giving body plenty of time to process it.
I m T1D too
My fasting sugars are around 250 with and without insulin
And also my insulin is coming down from 400 to 250 without insulin and the reason for this unknown to me…and if I m taking insulin my sugars are coming down to 150 but it bounces back around 250 on empty stomach.
Is it due to inflammation or menstrual cycle or something else
Ive followed all your advice and your techniques work well. You are the best diabetes educator in the world, and I recommend your channel to everyone I know that has diabetes.
Gee your food looks good! Your sugar values are fabulous!
You are in charge of your meds not food people. You need to hsve what you want.
I have dexcom g7
You’re like me. I’ve noticed that adding BUTTER kills the spike. I eat hardboiled eggs with Ezekial toast every morning and barely spike more than 20-30 points. However, I slather on the butter.
How do you like the G7? I’m using the Libre 3 and it’s always annoying off by over 10%. I understand you can calibrate the G7??
@Tucsonan Dude like it a lot. Yes you van calibration.
30 minutes warm up is magnificent. It take day to get it calibration right for me. But it has gotten better. Blood level and sensor are together you will have to still have the app clarity because g7 has a basic one. But for more info you’ll need full clarity
no more mastering diabetes?
@spyinthesky777 Wow…thanks! Was it expensive? Mine with a prescription is about $240 every 3 months.
I get mine though medicare in usa. No cost
Not 100%. But my diet is still built on it 90%+ I would say. I’m just adding a few things there where I believe they don’t do much damage-e.g. olive oil, occasional lean meat or fish, etc. hope this helps!
You understand health well. The poster on the other hand is eating like a person on their way to diabetic II, ironic to say the least.
He’s eating too many meals with snacks and compensating by insulin pumps. He would be better of being mostly in deep ketosis with no snacks and only 2 meals a day that are rich in fat and moderate protein. The protein and mainly the fat will buffer against the insulin spike from the carbs he consumes. He is also combing carbs are high glycemic index and without a buffer, the combine will spike insulin. Grains and legumes are not only high carb but mostly GMO and even if they are not, they would need to be sprouted or germinated before consumption, otherwise your insulin will spike. The reason why that remote island he references were seeing success on that supposed diet is because they likely do exactly that, germinate their beans and stuff.
Essentially on a macro level, ALL CARBS consumed are an INDULGENCE, there are no essential carbs, your body can make carbs as it needs. So any carbs I consume I’m conscientiously aware of what I’m doing. As a type I, I would NOT subject my self to having to pump myself extra insulin so I can indulge.
Also no reason why your min blood sugars need to be in the 80s, mine go as low as 50-60s when I’m in ketosis. Thats perfectly fine if your diet is low carb and if you are intentional and savvy about your carbs (like eat your apricots with pecans and drink ACV w/ water) during consumption to almost eliminate the insulin spike. Along with consuming electrolytes to regulate your potassium/sodium pump.
Checkout my profile, I have a public playlist called “Health 101”. Its everything I gathered on the topic of health. Best of luck
@Ace Green I am actually writing a book on weight loss. For the last year I spent considerable time researching health topics to lose weight, get in shape and get healthy and I feel I learned things I need to share for the greater good of society.
I found that what doctors and media say is pretty much exactly the opposite from what people should be doing. And I am convinced the same also is true for dealing with diabetes, to some extent.
Regulating sugar by drinking orange syrup and eating fruity, sweetened deserts every time your blood sugar starts dropping is like driving to work by pressing gas pedal to the metal every time your car starts slowing down too much.
It does not make any logical sense and IMO is actually harmful.
You may be regulating your speed between 20 and 40mph by constantly pushing your gas pedal and then releasing it, but that does not mean you are driving well.
Also, our bodies are built to get better by getting stressed. You will not run a marathon first time you start running and you will not lift heaviest weights. But if you keep stressing your body regularly you will get better at it.
In case of diabetes, our bodies are made to starve a little bit regularly. Our blood sugar is meant to drop and our bodies are meant to respond by producing sugars (gluconeogenesis). If you keep shoveling sugars into your body all day and night you prevent your body from getting good at producing sugars and in efect it gets worse at producing sugars to the point where you are completely reliant on supplementing it or you get into hypoglycemia.
Hypoglycemia is not a state where you have low blood sugar level. It is a state where your body is addicted to sugar and your body has low blood sugar.
In a healthy person that is not addicted to sugar, low sugar level is just a signal for the body to switch to burning fats and to start producing sugars to regulate them, that’s all. Nothing bad happens.
Healthy people have two mechanisms to regulate blood sugar: we produce insulin to lower sugar and we can produce sugar if the level is two low. If you are type 1 and you can’t produce insulin you better take care about the other mechanism for sugar regulation because otherwise you will be completely dependant on food dosing for the rest of your life.
Which is exactly what the video is trying to demonstrate — how to keep being reliant on putting food into your mouth to keep your blood sugar in check. The guy might be doing good job keeping his speed but the he ain’t driving well.
CGMs are not without faults.
For example, right now I inserted my G7 into a muscle on the arm (by accident, and also because I have very little fat on me). My sugar levels drop A LOT when i am swimming, but not during other activities. This is simply explained by the muscle G7 is inserted into being exerted and burning off sugars in it. It then takes a bit of time for the body to supply replacements.
Of course, the chemistry may depend on temperature and other circumstances. In general, temperature is one of the most critical factors that affects chemical reactions. But the body is very good at regulating temperature and if it gets just couple more degrees than your normal temperature it means you are in big trouble for other reasons than your blood sugar.
If I was you I would try to do independent measurements (with traditional strips), right after getting out of shower and then couple more times during the next hour to check whether the results your CGM is showing are confirmed by blood strips or are just an artifact of the measurement method.
Anyway, if you are diabetic you should have at least one other blood sugar measurement method on hand. If your primary method gives you results inconsistent with your experience (ideally you should be able to roughly predict your sugar levels based on what you are doing and what you ate) you can use the secondary to prevent you from doing something stupid and reacting to incorrectly high measurements with insulin and accidentally getting into hypoglycemia.
Ugh my 9 year old daughter was diagnosed 5 weeks ago and we are on the forth dexcom the first two did ok but the last two have lasted five days then act up it drops low then goes high has no arrow I don’t think we will ever be able trust the CGM enough to use a pump
@Leonard Milcin you are on point on everything. I would just highlight that its not JUST about weight-loss but lifelong health and longevity. Its “Get healthy to lose weight, not lose weight to get healthy.
Concepts like intermittent and prolonged fasting are also important to allow the digestive system to clear out and more importantly to reap the benefits of Autophagy. Also making sure you are hitting your micros RDAs or specific targets you are trying to achieve. I do this by logging everything I eat and basically east the same things daily as I have optimized for it. Its really a science and once you get the hang of it, it’s insanely powerful.
I wish the poster best of luck but even if he wasn’t Type I, he’s not doing it right.
