I just thought I'd inform fellow members on some interesting information regarding type 2 diabetes which seems to be becoming epidemic at least in
the developed countries. Having been diagnosed about six months ago, I first went to the doc because of recurring boils, as soon as one cleaned up
another started. Within a month on the usual Metaformin a couple of tabs a day, the boils cleared up. But after buying a blood glucose monitor, I kept
checking the readings..the usual is to take the reading a couple of hours after a meal, when it spikes, and one after you get up before breakfast to
get a fasting reading, this is when it should be its lowest. The best I seemed to manage was about 8 mlmols in the morning, and it was heading for 9
after a meal...multiply by 18 to get the American reading,or divide by 18 to convert back to British. After doing some research I read an interesting
but non definitive study about taking Apple Cider vinegar with the meal as it was said to lower blood glucose levels significantly. So I thought id do
a test, by eating the same meal for a couple of days, the first day I checked the Blood glucose levels every couple of hours and recorded them.
Morning reading was 8.5 and it seemed to hover from 8 to 9 through the day day. The second day when I got up the reading was as usual around 8 So I
put two capfuls of store bought cider vinegar in an 8 oz glass of water, after an hour after drinking it the reading was down to seven, with the noon
meal I took another dose, and an hour after it was 6.5 since then ive been drinking it every time I have a meal and did a reading every couple of
hours, the reading are now hovering around 5.8 to 6.1 which is bang on normal and apart from sore fingers where the lancet stabs can feel a great
Some reports stated that some peoples blood sugar dropped to low and they had to stop taking the Metaformin tabs, some had to take sugar to get the
Blood glucose levels up.
I just thought that I'd share this experience with ATS. My thoughts are that along with everything else as you age, you get a bit deficient in
stomach acid, and the hormone insulin. The Cider Vinegar might make up for this deficiency and slow the sugar absorption. Because its called "late
onset diabetes" its a bit of a clue.
