Motha f*ckin’ Chicken — I am so done with you!
Every time I eat it, regardless of how I eat it, my blood glucose level goes up and STAYS up. At around 11 this morning, I took my bgl; it was 102 . I took my insulin (20 units of Novalog). I ate 1/2 cup of chicken salad for lunch (s/b chicken, diced onion, mayo, sour cream, mustard, spices). Four hours later, my bgl is 165! After 4 hours, it should have come back down. It does with all other proteins that I eat, and especially if there are little to no carbs with it.
This is not the first time I have observed this. I am noticing it every time I eat chicken. Why? I am dumbfounded! Beef, pork, fish, eggs… they all decrease my bgl. Why does chicken raise it and keep it high?
Chicken… we are done. You will curse me no more!
