Thank you very much for your excellent comments. Only a type 2 with your vast and varied experiences in life knows for sure what he is talking about.

Please continue sharing your knowledge with us.

Brown rice causes a spike just like white rice.     It may take a bit more time but  if  it was so easy to just switch to brown   this would be nothing.      It is still a carb and still raisses   bg.    Now if you can exercise it like Bonny has  and that works then I see nothing wrong with it.     Not wanting to down doctors but  at times they really do not understand this disease.

Thanks Bonny. I meant to email you my progress.

I'm on no meds. Doctor said due to the quick drp in A1c that meds weren't on the menu.

Brown rice, as far as I know, doesn't cause much of a spike, at least not when compared to plain white rice. Could be wrong.

Neurologist did an MRI and some fancy new 3D scan. He says everything is perfect. Nothing to do with my brain. Diabetic doctor just started seeing me. He's not sure what to make of it.

Something happened today, i'll ask when i get home on my PC

Congratulations!!! Great progress on your A1c: from 8.9% to 7.2% and then 6.1% in 4 months.

If I were you, I would not worry much about daily blood sugar readings - fasting, before-meal, after-meal, pre-exercise, and post-exercise. I would just totally depend on my A1c results. I know that you, like me, have never taken any anti-type 2 diabetes drug and/or insulin.

Has your family doctor not been able to figure out yet what caused your hypo feelings? I strongly believe that they are not the kind that type 2s get when their blood sugar levels go below 70 mg/dl. If I remember correctly, you have never had any low blood sugar readings when you get these hypo feelings.

One of these days, I am sure that you or your doctor will tell us the cause of your hypo feelings. One experiment you can easily do is to skip a meal or two or three on your free day.

Thanks and regards,

For some rice can  cause a hyper then hypo reactive response were the body releases to much insulin.    I do not see you mention any meds you are on.

Update first, I went from 8.9 to 7.2 to 6.1 in 4 months. Fasting BG is still higher than it should be (125ish).

Today, I had a protein drink (50 grams of protein, 200 calories) and followed that up with grilled chicken, brown rice and boiled eggs.

4 hours later I was suppose to have lunch, but work messed up schedules. Around the 5 hour mark I decided to eat a little bit of my lunch box, a few bites.

I went into the wedding (Wedding minister) and felt dizzy, hypoglycemic. My chiropractor told me to breathe OUT and then breathe in, in that order when this happened. It helped a bit. At the 6 hour mark I had my lunch, which was the same as breakfast, and the rest of the day I was fine.

Should I have NOT eaten that little bit. Could that have caused some sort of insulin response that I don't want happening? Any ideas? I can't test during a wedding, just before and after. Since I was in a hurry I couldn't test before but after I was 150. 2 hours post meal I was 120.iFrame RemovediFrame Removed
