Intolerances and blood sugar issues ,, a connection ??
Recently I was diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia. I have been tracking my blood sugar levels for awhile now.
Interesting ( to me anyway ) is how my blood sugar levels reacts to different foods.In particular how my blood sugar levels reacted to foods that I had been questioning ( wither or not I was intolerant ).
I have been grain free except for rice for quite awhile . I had been questioning rice before I started tracking my blood sugar levels . Once testing my blood sugar levels I found that rice was sending my blood sugar off the charts ( over 200) even when eaten in very small amounts and eaten with a protein . It was when I tested dairy that I began to wonder ( dairy sent my blood sugar levels threw the floor , into the 40-50's )
Peanut butter was another food I had been questioning ( my blood sugar levels were all over the place when eating peanut butter)
Since eliminating rice, dairy and peanut butter my blood sugar levels have been stable .
, I am currently grain, refined sugar/artificial sweetener ,dairy free ,along with gluten and soy free( among others ), I eat frequently and am strict about eating a protein when ever I eat a carb , so those could be the reasons my levels are currently stable but I wonder ,,,,,,,,,,
So I am asking these knowledgeable forums,,,
Could there be a connection between intolerances and blood sugar issues ??
