Possible explanation for high fasting blood sugars....
I have been pondering for a long time as to why on say the 5th day of a water fast that my glucose is over 100.
Recently I have wondered if it is just insulin resistance at work.
Insulin resistance doesn't just go away because you are fasting and the glucose is being manufactured by gluconeogenesis rather than being supplied by the diet. Right?
I am also wondering if "insulin Resistance" is a variable thing that varies with other parameters, say adrenaline levels for example. That would explain some of my good glucose readings during a fast.
Anyhow this thesis seems to fit what is happening. Time will tell.
What are your thoughts?
