Hi all, have been wrestling with my diet lately. I keep a pain/diet diary to try and keep tack of dietary triggers that may exasperate symptoms and this has thrown up some questions especially regarding sugars.
I recently had my annual blood tests and found that my sugar levels are fine, which seems to indicate I am not pre-diabetic. Yet I find when I have a small amount of something sweet, like a piece of flour free orange cake, I am in pain the next day. Fresh fruit doesn't seem to trigger anything, which is why I love fresh fruit and vegetables.
I wondered what others experiences are of sugars and whether they are effected by them, and is there a safer option to refined sugar and even honey, which I find problematic. I have cookbooks that list other natural alternatives but I am sceptical, are they any less reactive?
Do hope you are all enjoying your weekends.
