Re: Sweet potato balances BS?
After eating the sweet potato my bs was good at 95 two-hr postpranial, it alarmed me to see it at 205 one hour post pranial. I read on one of the posts here that bs should never go over 180 anytime, but that taking bs 1 hour after start of a meal is not really necessary. I have hypothyroid problems, too much replacement makes my bp go too high, I'm wondering if thyroid problems can cause this type of problem. I can never get a straight answer from the doctors. Its hard to find any two that agree. My two-hour postpranial readings are always good. But my morning numbers are a little high 119 or so. I'm already on thyroid replacement, and 2 differant bp meds. I really don't want to have to take anything for bs control, I already have trouble with the thyroid meds, and adding anything else to the mix might make things even worse. I think for now I will avoid the sweet potatoes, or only eat a little bit. I want to control this before it becomes full blown diabetes, or do my numbers indicate that I'm already there? Thanks for the replys!
