    T2 diabetic here. I've had a lot of luck lowering blood sugars for the past 8 weeks with refried beans and potato starch. Yesterday when I go home from work, my reading was 126, a bit high for late...

    Most larger German delis in the US carry Blutwurst or blood sausage. Lots of non-muscle-meat bits of pig plus the blood binder and seasoning. Quite good, very heathy and very primal. I think I'll...

    I tried glycine supplements for a few months (I'm diabetic), never noticed any effect, either on blood sugar readings or anything else.

    The SSRI plus low blood sugars probably caused your dreamy...

    Eating while travelling is always a challenge. I relax a bit and try not to keep falling off the wagon when I return home.

    Call Covered California and explain your situation. If they can help, they will. If you'd like to reinstate, you can call the California Dept of Managed Health Care or Dept of Insurance, depending...

    When I was a kid in Germany, there was a goiter belt in the countryside around the Stuttgart area. Farmer's wives seemed particularly susceptible. The joke was that it made them all very religious;...

    I've been a T2 for 8 years (60 year old male, somewhat overweight at 205 on a 5'10" frame).

    I've been 80/20 primal for about 5 years, but it has not been enough to stop progressively increasing...

    Yeah doctors don't know anything. That's why I do my own catscans at home after a concussion. I've also performed lithotripsy on myself in the living room. We did have to replace the living room...

    A significant segment of the paleo community is not reality-based. Science is science. Not getting vaccinated when it is not medically contraindicated is like smearing shit on everyone you meet.

    Lack of updates until now, because all the numbers had been going downhill. It's no fun documenting failure.

    Last week my doctor told me it was time to consider insulin to control my T2. In a...

    My own experience as a diabetic is that refried beans (plus potato starch and medication) are invaluable in lowering blood sugar.

    Beans or insulin? Easy choice.

    I've had amazing results in the first week. Fasting reading this morning was 127, preprandial noon reading was 106. Refried beans (with lard) seem to be the most tolerable, using about 1/2 a can a...

    Anti-vaxxers seem to love long convoluted sentences with lots of nuanced phrases. That's how I write when I'm bullshitting someone.

    That said, I'm fine with skipping the flu shot. The others,...

    Thanks. I am desperate, since the Metformin is maxed at 2000 mg per day. Next step is insulin, which I'd like to avoid as long as possible.

    Poor blood sugar control & legumes

    After being diabetic for 8 or more years and eating primal for most of that time, my A1c keeps rising. Typical morning reading is 190, a bit lower in the afternoon.
