ogtt on yourself

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 10, 2011 at 8:16 PM

i'm transitioning to paleo and i am gluten free. i still eat some white rice during the middle of the day to keep me from becoming thinner.

so im doing the ogtt to myself now with a cup of white rice and so far here are my results (I HAVE BEEN LOW CARBING)

(hrs)(bg) base 90/ .5 111/ 1 137/ 1.5 136/ 2 130 2.5 134

does anyone know why it's taking forever for me to return to baseline? is that slow digestion?

i have never exercised in my life bc i am thin and have some health problems. do you all think exercise would help w/ insulin resistance? strengthening or more cardio?

huge tia

If you get your A1c tested, it will show fairly clearly if you have insulin resistance or not. Gastroparesis shoudln't be an issue unless you've diabetic for a while.

Like michael said....any form of weight bearing exercise you can do is a good start. Work with what you can do in pilates and add in some standard body weight exercises if tolerated. You said you "never exercised in your life", I consider pilates exercise though. Also things like hiking and brisk walks. You are the one who will have to determine when to progress within your own limitations, but working toward improvement is still optimal. Good luck!

i'm hoping even if i lose weight i can gain some muscle and then somehow it'll even out. it took me 5.5 hrs after eating the cup of rice to return to my baseline glucose. that is ridiculous!!!!

To keep it simple, exercise is good for you. Period. With your issues you have to figure out what you can and can't do, but do what you can. Even if you lose more weight it's worth it.

U should gain weight if you eat some white rice, yams, sweet potatoes and combine them with high fat Paleo. Your appetite should work up. We can't comment on your problem until you specify what kind of diet you're currently on and just how thin you are and what your BG measures are, if any.

What disorder do u have. For most, exercising will improve your IR. Check your BG after exercise. It should go down to the 80s or 70s.

Being thin is no reason to not exercise. Yes exercise helps in most all factors of metabolism. More resistance training over cardio.
