I have been doing 1 month of 100% huel. Not a single bit of hard food. See my post here that links into this. I got a blood test before and getting one after (writing this on day 17). One thing that I came across from the first test is I have a high Fasting Blood Glucose.
I did not eat for 15 hours before the blood test and my result came out at 6.4.
From what I understand 3.5-5.8 is a healthy level of Fasting Blood Glucose. 5.9-6.4 is considered ‘pre-diabetic’. And 6.5+ is considered the diabetic.
I do consider myself healthy; I exercise regular, eat 3-5 veg a day, and am slim / muscular (6pack). However I believe this high FBG could be self-educed. I LOVE SWEETS! I normally eat a pack of sweets a day, normally small sized. It is also not uncommon for me to have eaten a big bag of Haribo to myself without any worries. This maybe not the direct cause of high FBG and as I have got older I have eaten less sweets, but I would consider myself as a TREAT LOVER.
Why this is important is because I am doing 1 month of huel, and since I fit the ‘pre-diabetic’ category, which is reversible, I want to share my FBG level after as well to see if this was able to lower this amount to a healthy level. I still have a while to go but wanted to post this incase anyone else was going through the same thing / aid people to check their levels if they are also a treat fan.
