Yikes! Little Things Big Results

Here’s the kind of thing that happens when you are monitoring your blood glucose: I had two big free range chicken breasts and in my fridge was a bottle of chipotle-something marinade, which had 10 grams of sugar per 2 Tbs. So I smeared some on each and put them in the oven. They were delicious. But this morning when I did my first BG test I had a jump of 18points–yikes! I immediately threw out the rest of that sauce. Sometimes you don’t realize that things can have a bigger reaction that you think, but since that was the only food I ate that could have contributed to the increase, I know it was that sauce.

My BG is decent, though on the high end of normal, and I want it in the middle of normal– or lower. But I’m convinced that monitoring my BG fairly regularly these last three years has made a big difference.

I recommend to anyone, regardless of health, fitness, age, or weight to do some regular BG monitoring, because what you do now may mean the difference it what happens down the road. I wish I had started 15 years ago.

Yours in keeping on top of problems,
