    The Complete Guide to Fasting

    What Dr. Jason Fung also mentions, is fasting trigger autophagy - when cells recycle old damaged cells and build new ones. Cannot have any cream in your coffee or bone broth, fasting with tea, coffee, water activates that function. They are using fasting now with chemotherapy to repair cell damage, autophagy research got Nobel prize in 2016.

    Sometimes it does read different if it was a fluke first time, or 30-45 min later it could be metabolizm kicking in. When in doubt re-test, real readings will be within about 10 points (accuracy of the tester + - like 9).

    139, but that was after a reading of 186. I retested the same finger and the new reading was 139, I wonder if I retested again would the reading drop again?

    The Complete Guide to Fasting

    I am trying intermittent fasting these last 3 weeks, lost 7.5 lb and my BG in the morning is below 130s for the last 8 days (used to be around 140 or higher). Also eating low glycemic foods, and reduced amount of proteins consumed and consequently eating healthier; fasting one day and eating next day what I choose make it a "schedule" not diet for me plus I am satisfied with much smaller meals after fasting. The goal is not only to shed pounds but - with fasting 24 hrs every other day - to improve on a1c and try to drop expensive medications like janumet and trulicity (which have some side effects I am not enjoying, like itch on injection site, or patch of skin on my arm, and frequent urination disrupting sleep). Will report weekly.

    This Saturday morning my reading was 106. Panic at the grocery stores... snow is coming! Panic! You would think that a blizzard is coming instead of a measly 3 to 5 inches (7 - 12 cm).

    What happens when we discontinue Metformin

    Its been reported from several sources. Theyre not just peeing it out but also flushing unused pills down the loo Its not just Met but also antibiotics & hormone replacement drugs. https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2015/01/13/metformin-diabetes-drug-pollution-lake-michigan/21734507/

    What happens when we discontinue Metformin

    I don't know if I would agree with it being put in the water but I do suspect something. Doctors get annoyed and angry with patients who can't tolerate metformin For those of us who handle it quite well, they want to get us off it as quickly as possible. In other words, doctors only want you on meds which cause problems.

    What happens when we discontinue Metformin

    There are so many residents of Michigan peeing out Metformin that it was found in the fish. So I guess its already in the food supply.

    7 on this delightful rainy day... it's been a long time since we've had any. It's sad to see so many plants dyeing because of the drought, even those in the cities parks & gardens.

    What happens when we discontinue Metformin

    Seems odd that doctors and members are looking to get off or reduce metformin. In addition to helping with blood glucose / A1C, it has anti-cancer properties and should probably go in the drinking water instead of fluoride from what I read. 😁
