    Glucose Levels on AP


    When taking AP, should your glucose levels after a meal be higher than when not taking it? The reason I ask is because when i take AP, my blood glucose will hit 150 after a meal but if I dont take it, my blood glucose hardly ever breaks 120 after meal. Both meals contained about 75g carbs.

    That definitely sounds odd since the AP should help with the glucose uptake. I assume you're measuring your glucose levels via pinprick/glucose meter?

    Also I assume you didn't change the GI or GL of the carbs when you take AP vs not? Because it shouldn't raise you glucose levels from what I understand of the Glut4 receptor activation.

    The only reason I can think of is that there's glucose being released from your liver. The liver stores up to about 100g of glucose and in times of low blood sugar will release it so your brain can still function. It could be that your blood sugar drops faster than normal with AP and your body senses this and releases glucose to counter it.
