OK, Well I am type one diabetic.
I have been for 8.5 years now, it sucks but I am managing it with diet and bodybuilding. Since getting into bodybuilding it has been much better.
Recently Natural Muscle Magazine did an article on my and my diabetes, check it out here!
I am on page 34!!! SO if you see this magazine anywhere, at your gym or local health club, look for me!
Anyways. In the article you will see that I use Allmax R-ALA to help with blood sugars at time. I haven't used it in while so I am going to start it back up again.
For some reason in the mornings I am resistant to insulin. Right now I have been giving about twice as much quick acting insulin as I normally would. Which is not healthy.
I could wake up with a low sugar, eat and give all the extra insulin and get to work and test about 3 hours later and im up in the 300-400 range! When diabetics should stay between 80 - 120. So not good.
I recently started using a continuous glucose monitor. So for the next week I will post a screen shot of each day so you can see how ALA effects my sugars.
What I will be looking for:
- Better blood sugar control after breakfast
- Using less insulin throughout the day, less insulin will result in better fat loss!
- I am also looking to learn more about ym body and how certain things effect my disease.
***If you are diabetic, do not attempt this, I am very intune with my body, consult medical assistance when starting a product that will effect your insulin/blood sugars***
