So I was at the diabetes doctor the other day and had my best A1C reading ever. My previous one (8 months ago) was 7.0. 6 months before that was 6.5 (my previous low was this or possibly a 6.0 a long time ago, but I think 6.5 was my record).
Anyways I've been wondering what I could have been doing that caused this. Around 6 months to a year ago I had been having serious problems with overnight hyperglycemia and I think this contributed a lot to the 7.0 I had around that time.
It has since faded away in the past few months, and while this may contribute a little to the 5.5, I just don't think it is the entire explanation. 5.5 is seriously low.
So I'm looking to my diet for a possible explanation as I have added many new things to it lately that could have effects on my glycemia. One thing I have been taking lots of recently that I never took are nootropics, especially piracetam and Power Drive (for choline support) and now vinpocetine. Although I question whether they would have such a powerful effect on my blood sugar levels.
I've also been buying Superfood and eating a few scoops daily the past few months. This supplement represents a dramatic change to my diet as I have always not ate much fruit & vegetable (not that I avoided them or anything though).
I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed a similar effect? Or if I can suggest to any diabetics out there to give superfood a try for a few months and then get their A1C checked, go for it and see if anything happens.
