I am very interested in what to do if one has a borderline high glucose level (102) with no family history of diabetes. Maybe 10-15 pounds overweight with belly fat. I eat basically a plant based diet with protein from beans, nuts and seeds. I drink about 12 oz. of vegetable juice per day and usually an 8 oz. smoothie with lots of superfoods. I am wondering if I should cut back on my vegetables, fruit and juices. And if I don’t eat much animal protein other than once a week a piece of salmon, would it be recommended to eat more protein in the way of more nuts, seeds and beans? Thanks!
Hi Pam! We recommend connecting with a health practitioner in your area, who can take your full health history and develop a customized nutrition protocol that is specific to your needs. It sounds like you are making a lot of healthy choices already, and working with someone can help you fine tune, support and enhance your diet.
Hi there, I just listened to this podcast and was very interested in Meghan monitoring her own blood sugar level with a 24-hour meter. I’m wondering what brand of meter she used as I’d love to try the same thing. Thanks!
Hi Erin! Meghan uses this one: https://www.freestyle.abbott/ca/en/products/libre.html

I’ll be making that kale pesto for sure.
