In a glucose tolerance test (75 grams of pure glucose), the 30 min glu may be high, but it comes down quickly and by 2 hr is less than 140 in normal people. ...Read more

Could diabetics build their muscles when blood sugar is high?

Could diabetics build their muscles when blood sugar is high?

Depends: Hi. Kind of tricky question. If your type 1 and don't have insulin on board, the muscle is in a catabolic (break-down) state, and you wouldn't build muscle. If your type 1 with insulin on board, but just had a bunch of sugar so your BG's high, then yes, you could build muscle. Type 2 is more variable, but it still comes down to whether muscle is in a catabolic state or not in hyperglycemia. ...Read more

Hello I'm diabetic. Peas are often in my food. Are they high in natural sugar?

Hello I'm diabetic. Peas are often in my food. Are they high in natural sugar?

Pass the peas please: Though peas contain carbohydrate, their high fiber and protein content slow digestion. This results in moderating blood glucose levels. They rate low on the glycemic index scale, which is a ranking of how carbohydrates affect blood sugar. You list irritable bowel syndrome as a condition. Peas are a soluble fiber, which promotes gentle regularity necessary for people with IBS. Hope this helps. Best. ...Read more
