Testing Plexus Block with Oatmeal Breakfast

My previous blog was about not being on Metformin (or any diabetes medication) and eating oatmeal to see where my numbers went. It didn't go well.

I had gotten a sample of Plexus Block, a carb blocker that promotes healthy blood sugars. We all know, as diabetics, that is the issue! High glucose in the blood stream causes so many health issues so I would love a product that would let me eat my high carb sour dough bread and pizza!! Bring it on! I also love oatmeal for breakfast and since breakfast is my easiest time to test food/exercise/drugs, I decided to give Plexus a try. At 7:50am I tested at 101 and took the block. I ate at 8am the same oatmeal breakfast I had yesterday. 1/2 serving of oatmeal with 1T ground flaxseed. By 8:45am I tested at 189. Yikes - ran out the door for my walk/run.
Yikes! 189 and rising!!

I tried but looks like Plexus Blocker isn't the product for me.
