    Morning High blood sugar

    I have eaten an avocado for breakfast nearly every morning for the past decade (and more). Doesn't affect my blood sugar and provides a lot of fiber. As others have suggested, there are nonstarchy veggies that provide decent amounts of fiber, as well. Someone has mentioned flaxseed. You might try a porridge made from 1/4 cup each ground flaxseed and almond meal, flavore with sugar-free syrup. Mix those, then add enough boiling water to give you the consistency you want, and let it steep for a few minutes. 100% chocolate is also a low-carb friendly source of fiber. Takes a little getting used to, but it works. If you have a Trader Joe's near you, try the Montezuma's Absolute Black. It's 93 % cacao and 7% roasted cacao nibs which give it a slightly sweet, nutty taste. 25 grams gives you 6 grams of carbs, of which 4 are fiber, 14 grams fat, and 3 grams protein. Costco carries a Nuttzo keto butter (made from several different nuts). 2 tbsp gives you 18 grams of fat, 6 grams of carbs (of which 4 are fiber), and 4 grams protein. Good luck!

    Acid reflux and bg

    Hi Imitar welcome to the forum What does your diet look like? I had or maybe still have ulcers and took Ranitidine for many years. I had heartburn often too. Once I switched to a low carb high fat diet everything all but disappeared. I never have ulcer pain and my occasional heart burn is controlled by1 tums tablet. That heart burn is usually caused by my occasional cheat. I know that's not acid reflux but maybe diet could help you break your dependence on so many acid reducers. Even type 1's can benefit from a low carb diet. Read Dr. Richard Bernsrein's book "the diabetic solution" He is a type 1 who got diabetes in childhood. Last I heard he was over 80. He developed the low carb high fat diet and avoided any diabetic complications as well as reducing the amount of insulin he needed. I really don't know if the slow release of nutrients caused by lowering the acid in the stomach has anything to do with high blood sugar but it sounds reasonable

    Here on the Cape seals are all over the beaches and with the seal come the sharks. The sharks are so numerous that they have spotter planes going up and down the coast looking for sharks, and they close down the beach if a shark gets too close to shore. Two years ago a swimmer was killed at a town beach

    7 Diana I am in awe of you seeing so many whales. What a magnificent experience. The humpbacks here are on their return run to Antarctica . Great story of the seals Mike. A few years ago I enjoyed watching a seal sitting on the rock eating a huge fish..about 2ft https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-06-17/migaloo-white-whale-sightings-on-mid-north-coast/12361284 This is Migaloo a white humback that migrates along the east coast

    I came across this interesting article. This site, Hanauma Bay, is a popular destination for residents and tourists. Amazing transformation after the place got a bit of a rest from people. https://www.staradvertiser.com/2020/09/25/breaking-news/monk-seal-spotted-enjoying-waters-at-hanauma-bay-nature-preserve-without-humans/

    This morning’s reading was 143 @ 4:30AM Yesterday I went whale watching with some friends staying at my cottage. What you are looking at is the most famous humpback whale in the world! Salt and her daughter. "This book is about Salt, the most famous humpback whale in the world. Salt is a female humpback whale that feeds in the cold, productive waters of the Gulf of Maine. In the summer, Salt is often seen feeding off Cape Cod, Massachusetts.' [...] As of "2016 Salt had 14 children, 15 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren." What makes her famous is she was the first whale that they identified through body markings. "Much of the research used to study humpback whales utilizes a benign technique called photo-identification, or photo-ID. Here, natural body markings and features are photographed and used to create catalogs of known individuals. Individual humpbacks are then tracked over the course of a season as well as from one season to the next." See the two white marks on her back? That is how they know that it is Salt. We went to Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary about 20 miles north of Provincetown and when we were nearing the sanctuary I saw a number of whale watching boats and small crafts. Overall we saw about fifteen whales including Salt and her calf.

    Morning High blood sugar

    Respectfully - In cereal, whatever is not fiber is starch or, possibly, added sugar. Starch is a simple carb and is broken down into glucose quickly. This is why we are saying grains, rice, flour, pasta, and root vegetables should be avoided. There are much healthier alternatives than cereal when it comes to diabetes. When I was first adapting, the nut cereal, flax cereal, and keto microwave muffins helped wean me away from the bread, potatoes, rice, and cereal I thought I had to have. Glycemic index is a useful data point but lactose is still sugar. You can see if these things affect you or not by eating to your meter. That was an extremely educational process for me. I was going to be the diabetic that would eat tortillas. Well, I discovered that couldn't happen. The equivalent carbs in non root vegetables will have a greatly reduced effect on your glucose than cereal will. Those carbs are more complex and break down more slowly.
