I thought I might throw this out there for your consideration.
I’m a type2 diabetic who has his glucose levels under control. Several weeks back when paying for gas I decided to grab some of the cheap 12.5mg ephedrine tabs they had there and see what would happen at low doses. I used to eat this stuff like m&m’s years ago and was curious how it would affect me now.
I started taking 1 and a half twice a day several hours apart with some coffee/green tea. First, anybody who still doubts if this stuff works just must have never tried it. Energy galore for both cardio and weight training even at intake this low.
However there is no denying the fact that my blood sugar immediately began to rise and peaked on average 40-60 points higher than before. Sometimes a little more. This isn’t disastrous, but it is quite significant. I quit taking it and in a couple days it was back down to normal.
Just something to think about. It’s well documented that ephedrine causes blood glucose increases even in normal individuals with no regulation issues at all. Insulin sensitivity is one of the most anabolically significant considerations for people into serious training. The cons may outweigh the pros in this case.
If there’s already postage here somewhere about this I apologize, but I couldn’t find any.
