    honestly it looks as though your insulin resistant sugars should go back to basically normal by 2 hours post meal. this means you have problems with your glut4 comin to the surface and thus you have higher circulating levels of insulin.
    The kit only had 10 strips, and I goofed my first test up, so I had to budget the last 3 tests I could do.

    I had a wake up result of 103 and a 2 hours after eating result of 116. The final strip I used a few days later. I waited until I had ate and felt really really bad....so bad I had laid down for a nap...but decided to test first, it was 105.

    I really think I may have the hyperinsulinemia, the more I read on it the more it sound like me atm. Now that unemployment checks are flowing again I just ordered some Recompadrol after seeing it mentioned several times and researching it....apparently it was originally designed for just this problem. Hopefully it does the job and I can get to feeling better.


  2. My Recompadrol arrived yesterday. How should I take it for my problem? Should I continue my low carb diet? Should I contimue the 6 meals a day, but have the 3 main meals "normal" and the other 3 low carb, with the Recompadrol taken 1/2 hour before the main meals? I need a general idea for the best results.

    I tried a cap last night before eating some Chicken Tikka Masala and Basmati rice (which is supposed to be low GI). I felt a bit of a "whoosh" through my body about 20 minutes after taking it, is that normal? I still got tired after eating that, if the Recompadrol works for hyperinsulinemia, how long until I notice I feel better?

  3. Whooosh? You mean like a warming sensation.

    Start of with 1 cap 3x a day. If you can try and keep it low carb (for not just to try n increase insulin sensitivity a little more). Then add carbs as you see fit.

    It should greatly help with your blood glucose. There's a thread on BB specifically for diabetics and the supplement.

    Your pre diabetic it looks like from your readings as well. so start off how I said and eventually get up to full servings. And when you can test your sugars again

  4. Basmati rice I believe is high GI along with jasmine rice.

    I never had a problem with insulin spikes and crashes before. I definitely never had carbs effect me like this before.

    I always get hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia confused....which does this sound more like?

    Type 2 diabetes does run in the family (mom and brother) but I have no other symptoms (thirst, frequent urination, healing problems, ect). I just get really tired and need a nap after I eat.

    I guess maybe I'll try keto a while to see if I feel better.
    Wow your description of your own symptoms really resonates with me, as I share the same exact symptoms. My family also has a history of Type II diabetes. I have to be very careful with my post work out drinks, as some that have sugar cause me to crash and crash hard and even harder to concentrate while at work. It's also difficult putting on size when you can't take advantage of insulin spikes, without suffering through feeling like you're comatose for hours on end.

    Yeah, I really want to give a keto type diet a try just to see how I do. My biggest issue is on Keto I will do fine all day, but about 6 pm I will CRAVE carbs. The evil little bastards!

    I may see if my mom has any old blood sugar testing kits she doesn't use anymore laying around.
    I think we may be half brothers, but all kidding aside I suffer from the same issues, come evening time...crave, crave and more cravings for sweets.

    This is a serious quality of life issue and I've yet to find something that works, tried Chromium and not sure if it's all that effective.

    Recompadrol and Vinegar both appear to be popular, as forms of treatment, has anyone experienced success with either of these products?

  7. how are you getting your carbs? get some organic blue agave, its low in glycemic and its real sweet

    Neither Recompadrol nor vinegar are approved medical treatments.

    Look, if you are really suffering from insulin resistance/early stage diabetes you are simply not going to find a solution in a bottle unless it comes with a prescription. I know this is likely to be disregarded because people just want a solution that is convenient for them but there isn't one.

    Anyways, good luck.

    The Apple cider vinegar was approved by Dr. Oz and Bob Greene. I saw that on TV a few weeks ago and it's why I started taking it.

    Ok I know all this gets complicated but bear with me.

    At best, vinegar slows (not stops) the digestion of carbs. That means that ultimately, your body must at some point, still process them. Therefore it is no better than a band-aid.

    Also the media loves to jump on any studies that suggest even the slightest potential for any 'natural' products to have therapeutic applications. This makes for interesting news/TV but is rarely of any practical value. I can guarantee that no endocrinologist is going to advise acetic acid as a first line treatment for diabetes.

    Thanks and I understand that. I was more hopeful than anything, for a natural alternative as opposed to an RX. I've been to an endo and educated myself extensively on the issue of insulin resistance, as type II diabetes is prevalent in my family. My endo didn't seem to think that I needed treatment for insulin resistance, which isn't viewed by medical community the same way as a diabetes is , an almost passive approach towards offering the patient any type of treatment.

  12. At 5'10 / 245, plus a family history of diabetes and hitting middle age, its a safe guess that he is having insulin resistance / metabolic syndrome. Top priority is to get diet under control and lower body fat ASAP.

    Get down to 180-200 and you can likely manage it without needing drugs. With the internet you can easily find tons of information on diabetes. Get your carbs from low GI foods.

    Its really all up to you at this point.
