I learned about the glycemic index today.  Basically,  I checked my blood sugar last night because I didn’t feel quite right.  It was 233.  Normally I have been running 88 to 134 so I called my doctor, Dr. Herl here in Manhattan.

I have been eating a lot of potatoes, mashed and bake.  They have been my main staple.  Today I found out they have a fast absorption of the sugars into the blood which is the reason it was spiking.

I am back to the 135 level and hope to go lower.  Live and learn.
