The internet seems to have two opinions here if I Google –
People with diabetes should AVOID glutamine
People with diabetes should EMBRACE glutamine
[quote]Obesity Diabetes Insulin Resistance
Persons who eliminate carbohydrate from their diet can experience withdrawal symptoms such as ?brain fog?. The brain?s primary source of energy is glucose. If suddenly the brain has no glucose, the result can be a foggy-headed feeling along with cravings for carbohydrate.
A great solution is the nutrient amino acid, glutamine, which the brain can readily use for fuel in place of glucose. Glutamine has the advantage of not increasing blood sugar, and not stimulating insulin release, while feeding the brain the energy it needs to function properly.[/quote]
Anybody around here with diabetes supplement with glutamine? Safe for you?
