Well, we have a cold, blustery day today.
DV: You know that the renal threshold for glucose to spill over into urine is around 200 mg/dl.
It's sort of a limiter on rising blood glucose.
I have a friend in Nevada who's using Invokana. (He might also be using Victoza.)
Invokana works be pushing glucose out the kidneys. I don't think he'd be on Invokana if it was unsafe as he's got some renal problems.
He and his siblings all have what appears to be genetic renal cysts that somewhat compromise renal function by occupying space needed by nephrons.
I'd worry more about UTI's.
What would you blood sugar do if you cranked back on carbs?
