Diabetes is a disease where your body cannot control its blood sugar levels properly – either because your body doesn’t make enough (or any) insulin, or because your cells have become resistant to insulin. Insulin is produced in the pancreas, it is important because it helps your body process sugars.
Diabetes can affect the body in many other ways, including eye disease, foot ulceration, kidney failure, amputation and a higher risk of heart disease.
Keeping your blood sugar at a safe level means you’re less likely to experience other health problems.
If diabetes is diagnosed and managed effectively, you can still live a long and happy life as long as you stay in control. There are also many people in Fiji living with diabetes who may not even know it because they don’t have the symptoms, it is important to get your blood sugar tested regularly to avoid Diabetes related complications further down the track. The 2002 STEPS survey identified that out of the 16% diabetics, 50% of them were previously unrecognised which is an alarmingly high number. Given the fact that 30% of Fijians have Diabetes, you have a 1 in 3 chance of having or developing diabetes.
Early detection and treatment of diabetes can decrease the risk of developing the complications of diabetes.
The best way to check if you have diabetes or are at risk is to visit your local health centre.
This chart shows the different levels of blood glucose, what are safe levels and what are dangerous levels depending on when you last ate. Even if you have no symptoms at all, it is important to get tested as you may still have diabetes. You can prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes through adopting a healthy lifestyle.
By changing your diet, increasing your level of physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight, you can stay healthier, live longer and reduce your risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 diabetes occurs when your cells have become insulin resistant or your body doesn’t produce enough insulin to keep you healthy.

For my next installment on Resistant Starch, the following post documents an N=2 (two study subjects) collaboration to record blood glucose readings in different states of dieting, with and without RS. After reading the information you posted from Tim and yourself on resistant starch, I wanted to verify personally whether my father could take it so that he could get the immunological and gut-healing effects of RS, while staying in ketosis.
At that point, Tim and I started to collaborate, looking at a second possibility raised by the literature, that of “blunting” of the Blood Glucose (BG) rise by resistant starch when taken together or before a high-glycemic food. The strongest blunting effect is under what may be considered ‘normal’ eating conditions for most people; that is, not in ketosis and not prolonged fasting or intermittent fasting.
It’s not a surprise to see different responses to fasting as they depend on the length of the fast and state of glycogen stores previously. Here’s a single-graph comparison of the blunting effects when resistant starch in the form of unmodified potato starch is taken an hour prior.
Got on the RS bandwagon some months ago at the same time as many of you here and have continued to take 3-4 tbs six days a week. Please tell me you did the sunrise bike ride 40 miles down Haleakala with 200 yards of peddling (one of my best memories ever).
Has anyone noticed foods that when consumed with RS produce tremendous farts while other foods produce none at all?
I kept laughing to myself when you made fun of people whining about unevenly cut onions and mushrooms….
I’m wondering if it’s best to take the 4TBS in one dose, or spread out over the day in two 2 TBS doses? About to travel in Europe for 7 weeks, and not sure where I’ll be able to find the stuff, so now I get to see what happens when I now go without.
I personally feel that if you are taking potato starch as a supplement, it may be best to take it all at once. Taking small doses throughout the day probably isn’t a waste of time, but if you are looking for a reason to take it all at once, this is probably it.
Tater, do you think 2 tbsp twice a day is a happy medium, as opposed to taking all 4 in the morning? Possibly taking it in a 2×2 fashion as you suggest is really good as it will get a good sized flood of RS into the intestines and cause fermentation twice in one day.
I am a little jealous that I had zero farts as I had meetings with fellow execs that I am not too fond of and was hoping for a round of SBD’s. Rob gets the award for most ignorant question asked in thousands of comments on a dozen posts. I had NO issues with gas when doing this at first, when the main carb was cooked potato, but a couple of months later when I tried some sugars, there was a small effect. Combining your banana info with my sugar info, it’s suddenly possible that the fructose in the sugar is the key.
Meanwhile, I suspect that whether or not someone has been eating wheat (and how recently) will also affect the gut biome recomposition, since wheat has its own effects on the gut. Also, take them if you can at the same time as RS, there’s a possible synergistic effect that has the RS protecting the probiotics, helping more of them reach the colon. A lot of people have a damaged gut biome for many reasons, but a common reason is antibiotics – and this is well known medically.
Blood glucose monitoring – wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, Blood glucose monitoring is a way of testing the concentration of glucose in the blood . Blood glucose test – monitor your blood sugar level, Blood sugar tests tell us about how well our body is processing glucose.
A diabetes glucose monitor no blood test need, The monitor you are writing about is very new.
Blood sugar – wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which a person has high blood sugar level because either the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or cells do not respond to it. Normally after intake of food, it breaks down into glucose – the main fuel for energy in human body. Polyurea (Increased Urine out put) : Body tries to get rid of increased blood sugar and thus increased urine is seen to eliminate the extra glucose from the body making the sufferer dehydrated and tired. Weight fluctuation : Earlier seen as weight loss due to utilization of fat from body for energy, later weight gain occurs due to increased appetite.

Untreated Diabetes may lead to irreversible damage to the Eyes (Retinopathy), Kidneys (Nephropathy), Nerves (Neuropathy), Heart (Heart Attack) and Feet (Diabetic Foot). Both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes can be managed through diet, Exercise, Routine check up and Medicines.
Diet : A balanced diet with veggies, fruits, whole grain, beans, fish, lean mean meat, non fat dairy, fiber rich food like salad is suggested. Exercise : Exercise increases the blood senstivity to insulin stimulates muscle to use glucose. Medicines like Seenthil Kudineer, Seenthi Choornam, Vilva kudineer, Avarai kudineer, Madhumegha choornam, Nyavalkottai Choornam, Silasathu parpam, Abraka chendooram, Triphala Choornam etc are used in treatment of Diabetes. Seed powder of Jamun or Euginea jambolena can be taken in dose of 3-5 gram twice daily with hot water.
Quit smoking : Smoking increases chances to develop complications like diabetic foot, nerve damage, kidney damage, heart and vascular problems.
Propionic acid metabolism Oxidation of an odd chain fatty acid results in the production of one propionyl-CoA.
Triacylglycerol Storage Fatty acids are released from triacylglycerol in VLDL and chylomicrons by the action of Lipoprotein lipase.
Triacylglycerol Storage In adipose, glucose metabolism is required for the synthesis of triacylglycerol. The rate controling step is the hydroysis of triacylglycerol by hormone sensitive lipase to form 2-monoacylglycerol. Fatty acid mobilization Regulation of hormone sensitive lipase Perilipin and hormone sensitive lipase interact when phosphorylated. Fatty acid mobilization Another regulated lipase, adipose triacylglycerol lipase, also participates in triacylglycerol mobilization.

Introduction – all forms of life depend directly or indirectly on light energy captured during photosynthesis – glucose molecules are broken down back. Introduction to Cellular Respiration The majority of organisms on earth use glucose as their main energy source. Currently almost 1 in every 3 Fijians is being diagnosed with diabetes, that’s 30% of the population. You can always visit your nearest diabetes hub to get your sugar checked ad learn how to stay in control of your diabetes.

Under such normal conditions, there is only a very small rise in BG (~ 28 points) for me when eating a cooked potato after drinking 4 tablespoon of potato starch stirred in water. There is also an apparent ‘second meal effect’ or long-term effect from simply taking 4 tablespoons of RS every day, which improves the blunting in a ‘normal’ metabolic state.
I used to eat quite a lot of butternut squash, and felt it was somehow different than other starchy foods.
It can take some weeks for the good bugs to proliferate with RS, until they crowd out other bugs that can’t use RS as efficiently (which give you gas). If you get a lot of noxious gas, taking yogurt or some other fermented food might help you populate the gut sooner with good bugs. This effect is only if I take it at roughly the same time as the sugar (honey, chocolate ice cream), not if I took RS in the morning, say, and had dessert that night. I remember two decades ago my Canadian doctors always telling me to eat yogurt when they prescribed antibiotics.

Type 2 diabetes is more common than Type 1, it is also more easily avoided if the correct healthy lifestyle is adopted. However, some people with Type 2 diabetes have symptoms so mild that they go unnoticed so it is always best to get your blood sugar levels tested by a medical professional.

The second control was done to check for any difference in BG response to potato alone after consuming PS daily for two months, but no additional supplementation with or before the meal. For me, it all adds up to the same thing: Resistant Starch is absolutely NOT going to hurt you ever, even if diabetic. By the time they get to your stomach or at the very least your small intestines won’t they be at body temperature?
How much time and how much gas you get at first will depend on each person’s microbiome composition. In fact, there seems to be a synergistic effect, so one suggestion is to take RS at the same time as your probiotic of choice – the RS may help the good bugs get all the way to the colon. Today, the doctors in Greece do this as a matter of course, they even prescribe the capsules to make the point.
It is an autoimmune disorder when the immune system goes against its own self causing destruction of the pancreatic cells that produce insulin.
This happens when the body does not make enough insulin or resist direct action of insulin due to hormones. It is peak time to change our diet and lifestyle and prevent Diabetes otherwise called Silent killer. I have diabetis since last 22 years.sugar in blood keeps fluctuating but within diabetic limits.

You see no blunting while in actual ketosis, but various levels of blunting effect in other states.
If you are in ketosis or fast regularly, the results are not as profound but there appears to be a subtile benefit over time. But in people with diabetes, the pancreas produce little or no insulin or the cells become resistant to insulin produced. Due to ineffective glucose metabolism, the body uses alternatives like fat metabolism to produce energy leaving the person tired and fatigue seen. These patients have 40% chances of developing Type 2 Diabetes if they are obese or have irregular food habits.
