for me, it's hard to deny that GLP-1 helps prevent hypo's. Here's the evidence. 1. Back in 2014 and earlier without GLP-1, I experienced a treated low blood sugar about one out of every 3 workouts. A workout for me is a six to seven mile run that usually takes about 1 hour. 2. While on GLP-1, I had only a single mild treated low blood sugar during a workout. This over a period of 5 months and approx. 65 one hour workouts. 3. Today, I had another treated mild low blood sugar while running. This makes 3 of these since stopping Bydureon just over a week ago. This evidence seems undeniable that GLP-1 helps me prevent hypo's. I will mention this also to my Endo in the morning. By the way, my blood sugar post prandial is still very slow to rise and I still am taking much less and sometimes no fast acting insulin.
Do you take GLP-1 as L-Glutamine Powder or in another form?
i really hate these low blood sugars while working out. Have those nearly everytime I do sport.
I switched my diet to raw food - means coconuts, vegetables, fruits, seats & nuts - no cooking. I took some enzymes as well. I am doing this now for 6 months. I can recommend this (not only for diabetes). but I lowered my insulin about 75 percent. means I did 30 tresiba or levemir a day before my raw food diet. now it is 10. same with fast acting insulin. I think if we try this verapamil thing it is much easier for the body with a raw food diet. btw u can heal type 2 with raw food diet on it's own. dont want to do to much off topic, but I got rid of tooth and back pain because of this as well.
