If you are on medication for diabetes, for the first two weeks of Phase 1 please maintain the blood sugar chart. You may provide this information to your physician to help them determine when it is an appropriate time to adjust your medication levels.
If your blood sugar level falls below 80 or you feel symptoms of low blood sugar (such as light‐headedness, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea) have a spoonful of honey dissolved in a cup of hot tea or hot water. The symptoms should pass within 10 – 20 minutes of drinking the dissolved honey.
It is important to dissolve the honey, so the is glucose readily available to the body. Please take your blood sugar reading again ½ hour after having the honey.
If your blood sugar level falls below 70 more than once a day, you should contact your physician immediately to discuss adjusting your medication dosages.
