I have 500 mg capsules, and directions from several months ago for taking 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 a day, but he never said WHEN to take it. I took it in the morning, don't remember the dosages, and was sick to my stomach by late afternoon. But I quit that Dr when he wanted to do some unnecessary testing.
I'm eating VERY DIFFERENTLY now. Almost 3 weeks without sugar or carbs, eating high protein meals 3 times a day.
My blood sugar testing has been first thing when I get up (9-10:30 for me), as I know it increases by itself once you get moving. I've been eating protein, vegs, fruit for dinner around 6 pm, and I go to bed 10 or 11.
I know I need to do the after-food testing to see what produces spikes for me, but since I don't like the needle I haven't convinced myself to do that yet. Little steps.
I imagine less fruit?
