The final destination of a journey is not, after all, the last item on the agenda, but rather some understanding, however simple or provisional, of what one has seen. In these modern times, with the plethora of blood-sugar-related diseases, we need tools like GI and GL to help us understand ways to control blood sugar. The self-testing, graphic approach to food testing developed in the balance of the newsletter is a less scientific but a more dynamic way to explore postprandial (post-meal) blood glucose levels (BGLs). GI measures the blood glucose impact of foods eaten in isolation, yet we rarely consume foods this way. GI readings vary with the individual—blood sugar and insulin reactions are more extreme for diabetics, for example (See Charts 2A and 2B). GIs are calculated in the science lab as the day’s first meal after a 12-hour fast and using a fixed serving that includes 50 grams of carbohydrate.  Most of our daily calories, however, are consumed in combination and throughout the day, when our blood sugar is affected by other foods that we have eaten earlier, as well as by our level of activity. Of the following numbered charts, the first three are based upon scientific research journal articles (Charts 1, 2A, 2B), while the last four (Charts 3-6) are constructed from my own self-testing of foods4 using a simple blood glucose monitor. Chart 1:  Blood Sugar Curves of White Bread Compared to Bread with Added Fiber, Sourdough, and Vinegar. Chart 3:  Instant Oatmeal, Whole Oats (Soaked and Not Soaked), and Whole Oats Combined with a Protein and Fat. To fully appreciate the impact of two back-to-back carbohydrate breakfasts please notice that the scale used for Chart 6 is twice that of Charts 3-5. Resetting the Table–to Control Blood Sugar (For a discussion of other strategies, see April 2011). Ramekins filled with condiments like nuts and seeds (GI=0).  Nuts and seeds provide healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, while they slow digestion and curb blood sugar. Sourdough bread or whole-grain bread with whole kernels; butter from grass-fed cows and organic nut and seed butters such as tahini and pumpkin seed butter. A pitcher of water and glasses for all—sometimes we mistake hunger for what is in fact thirst.  You might flavor the water with a little lemon juice or other flavoring.
Because 12-hour fasting, pre-meal blood sugar reading can vary, all data points at time zero prior to the first morning meal were indexed to zero in order to illustrate the change from a neutral starting point.
I use the label “traditional” carbohydrates, just as we call unrefined fats, “traditional” fats.

I’ve read in dozens of articles across the internet that reactive hypoglycemia is one of the first signs of diabetes. In other words, if you have true reactive hypoglycemia (with symptoms appearing at 2-3 hours), the statistics say you are more likely to have a lower risk of diabetes. In order to illustrate why it isn’t easy to give a diagnosis for any particular disease, here is a graph of two patients who have just had a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT).
Blood glucose levels alone tell you practically nothing about your possible prediabetic status! It’s very interesting because it explains how doctors and diabetic associations have it all wrong about diabetes risk. There are economical interests as to why the Diabetic Association don’t change their criteria for diabetes diagnosis and risk. Considering this data it seems that many people with Reactive Hypoglycemia are indeed at risk for diabetes, because they have an impaired glucose tolerance. If you are just discovering your RH – please understand that it takes time for the carbo-cravings to subside.
I have not found a reason to avoid meat, but do best when I also include a sizable amount of vegetables. To learn more about Type I diabetes, and Type II diabetes, visit our Health articles and Pharmacy news section today! The second factor—the postwar shift from traditional to refined carbohydrates—is largely due to the growing role of the commercial food industry and processed, convenience foods.  Convenience foods must have a long shelf-life, so food companies rely upon refined flours and oils, which do not go rancid. Visual pictures of postprandial blood sugar behavior, while less scientific than GI measurements, are nevertheless powerful learning tools, providing a real flavor for how our body reacts when we eat different kinds of foods.
This chart illustrates the second meal effect– that what we eat at one meal affects postprandial blood sugar behavior at the next.
What we do to our children when we give them a sugary cereal or a Pop-tart for breakfast extends beyond this first meal to affect their blood sugar, hunger, concentration, and desire to overeat throughout the rest of the day. One of the best herbs and spices to moderate blood sugar.  It can be sprinkled on hot cereals and desserts such as puddings, custards, and stewed fruits. As a mathematician who teaches statistics classes at the college level, I have a pretty good idea. The patient with the red line is overweight (with most of her fat around the hips and thighs).
A Hyperglucidic Breakfast Test is the only test that will be able to tell you if you have a high sensitivity to insulin (and therefore a lower statistical risk of diabetes) or a low sensitivity to insulin (and an increased statistical risk for diabetes).
It seems that a high fasting blood glucose is not even necessary to be diabetic and that it is the worse predictor of diabetes.


Reactive Hypoglycemia when connected with diabetes can be understood as resistant phase 1 insulin but excessive phase 2 insulin, whereas diabetes is resistant phase 1 insulin but unadequate phase 2 insulin. Sitting on the couch, eating that litre of Oreo Cookie ice cream (yes, I remember the carbo-munchies!) will lead you to diabetes just as fast as the non-RH crowd. I do better with rice, but even after 20 years I only consume a few tablespoonfuls with my meal.
Identify your HbA1c test score, mean blood and glucose level to know if your blood glucose is in the optimum level. According to many prominent researchers (including Achim Starke, MD and Jean-Frederic Brun), it does not.
Giving a patient a diagnosis of reactive hypoglycemia (or prediabetes) involves looking at a few numbers, analyzing those numbers, and coming up with a diagnosis for the patient.
Another 20% said she had a 1% chance, and an incredible 60% got it wrong and said she had an 81 or 90 percent chance of having cancer! The red patient looks borderline, but the GTT cannot be used to accurately diagnose reactive hypoglycemia (to find out why, see my article on tests for reactive hypoglycemia). It seems that fasting blood glucose as low as 95 are already sign of impaired glucose metabolism. There are many diabetics in my family and none of them have diabetes markers: they are all thin, with no large waist and with low blood pressure. However there’s other literature that suggests such a low score would indicate further testing to find out the cause. It took me a good 12-18 months for the cravings to fully subside, but eating a diet containing a balance of protein (I am not vegetarian), fat, and (after a couple of months) very complex carbohydrates worked for me. This is why diabetes and obesity often go hand-in-hand (90% of diabetics are either overweight or obese).
David Ludwig regarding high-glycemic foods and overeating, cited in the Recommended Reading section at the conclusion of this newsletter. Unfortunately, physicians frequently misread health statistics, and do not know the probability that someone has a particular disease given the results from a screening test. Additionally, the red patient has excess body fat around her hips, which actually protects from diabetes! It seems that a reading above 145 at any moment in the glucose tolerance test is the best predictor of diabetes.
My understanding was that RH+weight gain put more of a strain on the pancreas, resulting in a higher chance of diabetes. That’s according to a report by the journal Psychological Science in the Public Interest published in US News.
