After 5 days, husband is doing better than ever, I stopped the oils in the diet at the same time he stopped the metmorfin and he has lost almost 2 pounds of the final 5 he was trying to lose (I was the queen of olive oil
). I've also lost a pound without trying, how cool is that? His blood sugar numbers have progressively gotten better every day, we have a nifty little app that logs everything. This morning (Thursday) his fasting number was 93, (it was 113 Monday morning) and that was after a hearty dinner of lentil/bean shepherd's pie with a thick potato, sweet potato and carrot topping (that composed 50% of his plate, the rest was made up of green beans and broccoli).
So much for the carbohydrates being bad for diabetics theory. The only issue we're concerned about is that he has a noticeable spike after breakfast (198 Monday morning - all his other numbers were under 130 for the day). Today I gave him the same breakfast (raw oats with soya milk) but with no coffee, and it seems to have had an effect on his 2 hour post breakfast reading because it was 129! That's quite a drop from 198 in 4 days. I guess coffee is going off the menu around here.
My only regret is that we didn't do any testing while he was on the metmorfin, it would have been really nice to know what was going on before, not a very scientific approach! Oh well, I'll settle for normal blood readings thank you very much.
