Welcome! I'm sure you'll get a lot of good advise here. I'm insulin resistant also but it took me a year to connect caffeine to my blood sugar readings. So I drink decaf coffee and herbal teas now which has improved my blood sugar readings. Research I found online has concluded that caffiene can hinder insulin, hence my higher readings. Of course, everyone is different:) For me the big difference is also getting the weight off and exercise! It's a whole lifestyle change for those of us who weren't eating right or exercising every day.

Again, welcome!

My fasting levels are slightly above where they should be, how do I get them down farther? Since my GTT I have started taking metformin 2x a day, but that doesn't seem to be making a difference. any ideas or insight into this.. I"m newly diagnosed, so it's all new!
