Ok. I've decided to do a couple personal experiments and I was hoping I could get some input. My goal is to get a better understanding of how my body reacts to various foods. I have two ideas to achieve this. Measure body temp and glucose levels throughout the day and in relation to foods, activity, etc...
- Glucose Meter
After poking through some threads on PaleoHacks, it seems the Accu Check Aviva is a favorite. It also seems like sourcing these online is the best route. I attempted to buy one a while back but got confused by all the options and accessories. So I ask, what do I absolutely NEED to take and track readings?
Not overly sure what types or brands are most accurate. Is orally the best? or inner ear? Any suggestions are appreciated.
As far as implementation, I want to make sure I am taking into account all the necessary variables. As far as blood sugar, I am planning on measuring first thing in the morning, before a meal, and every 30 min after for 2 hrs. Are there any other important times to be aware of? And I'm assuming measuring body temps at the same time will be sufficient? Or does anyone have any better suggestions?
Thanks for all the help
