    Thanks, Otzi. I guess I'm not as diabetic inclined as I thought I was, and it will be interesting tracking my blood sugar levels on a potato diet. Alas, poor hubby has eaten himself well and truly into the no potato zone, but can handle most things fairly well. Peanut butter will also send him skywards, but those 2 foods were constants in his life before he got his diagnosis. Fortunately or otherwise, he can't handle even mild diabetes medications; so diet and abstinence are his only options right now.

    Normal glucose levels are important to good health and the next blood sugar chart shows the fasting level for a normal person and then the raising and falling of blood sugar after a meal.

    Let's see if this link works: It shows normal variances over 24 hours for 21 insulin sensitive people, eating regular food.

    Here's another good chart to show what levels should be at certain times:

    I'll have a look, ta.

    looked at those links, I still wonder if the starch causes spikes that would add to insulin resistance?

    My little pea-brain says that eating nothing but starchy tubers for 7-14 days would not cause insulin resistance. I followed a strict low carb (less than 80g) for over two years, being careful not to 'spike my insulin'. After testing my insulin/glucose response after several potato meals, I can say I am not insulin resistant. Eating nothing but potatoes for a really long time, say a year, would be a better bet to cause insulin resistance.

    Really good talk on how we handle starch. From AHS 2012, Chris Masterjohn:

    It's a psychological ploy! The more boring the presentation the more intellectual the presenter must be right! Nah, just playing. i haven't watched it yet, but when I got an hour to burn I plan to.
