This video is about cauliflower and its impact on blood glucose level. This channel will inform what food impacts blood glucose or sugar level and how much. Which foods are good and which should be avoided in diabetes.

I'm not sure what the point of this video is since there is no comparison of quantities or of different food items.
We don't need a Blood Glucose Meter to know that Cauliflower (or Cauliflower 'rice') has a much lower impact on blood glucose levels than real Rice does (be it white, brown or even red).

Surely since she has a freestyle Libre she could have done continuous monitoring and showed us the graph of the BG - was that 8.2 high the absolute high, or was that at some other time?

Most of us T2D's have been advised that we should try to keep the BG below 8.0 rather than the ultra-cautious 7.8 that she is quoting and have also been advised that the best single point checks (for impact of food) are 2hrs after first bite of food (not after completing the meal). With other times being at 1hr (especially if its a higher Glycemic Index meal) and 3hrs after if its a high protein meal or if carbs were eaten with lots of fat (e.g. to slow down the BG spike).

At the end of the video you say that the satisfactory result lets you know that, in future, you can have the same food knowing what effect it will have on your BG. I have found that it is not as definitive as that. I have often found that an identical meal can give surprisingly different results on different occasions. I assume that there are factors which can cause this. No big deal at the end of the day, but worth noting that a one off test result is not carved in stone.

Thank you so much for your help and guidance.

Yes, you are right. After making my video, I realized my mistake.

I am the same too!

Without going over old ground, I experienced an example of this yesterday. For dinner I had stewed lamb leg, in gravy with celery, mangetout, mushrooms and three small baby potatoes cooked through. Before eating my BG was 5.7 and, to my surprise, after two hours rose to 8.6. A couple of weeks ago I had the identical dish and went from 6.1 to 6.7. As far as I can calculate, my physical and mental condition was the same on both occasions yet there was a wide gap in results. It’s a funny old game.

Yes I agree @Browser, and I think that the chart posted by @James B earlier today, helps remind us of the reason why!

Apart from the in-built inaccuracies in meters, there are so many factors that can cause BG to vary.

It sounds an absolutely delicious meal though, makes me feel hungry, so time for lunch - but it won't be anything as tasty as you Sunday dinner though.

Thanks for that Toucan. I recollect seeing that chart a while ago ...... very interesting.

Rightly so, Martin. But your decisions are based on a tried and tested series of results. My point is simply that a one off test is not a definitive or reliable piece of data.

You are right guys, it is my first video, that's why I do have mistakes. couple of mistakes you mentioned above, I realized and trying not to do it again. Ironically, I also studied statistics. :). I really appreciated your comments. Thank you.
