Week has been crazy. Basement flooded on day 5. Had really bad headache on day 6, but that may not have been the fast :) Many hours of no sleep but stayed the course.
I started the cleanse because I lost 40 lbs without trying since Thanksgiving. You guessed it, my blood Sugar was very high. Many times it was checked, it was in the 400s. Highest I ever saw it was 498. I wanted to see what the cleanse would do before I was placed on diabetes meds.
Here are the blood Sugar levels I got when I checked. I test more than once on some days.
Day before - 463
Day 2 - 356
Day 4 - 190, 223
Day 7 - 152, 149
Day 8 - 93
Day 9 - 91, 161
Day 10 - 97, 122
I don't know what will happen when I go off the cleanse, but I hope they stay stabilized. Type II diabetics are only insulin resistant, so maybe I have eliminated the stuff that was making me resistant.
The next result I received was unexpected. I have never heard of this. On day 7 my glasses are too strong. I got up that morning and put in my contacts as usual. My right eye was a little blurry. I figured the contact just hadn't laid good against my eye well and would seat itself within a few minutes. When I got to work, the computer monitor was a little fuzzy. I feared the worst. I figured the high blood sugars had damaged my eyes and it caught up with me. Later that night when I was in bed, I removed the contacts. I was able to see the guide on the TV better than I could with my contacts in. I usually have to put on my glassed to see the guide after my contacts are out. So, I put on my glasses (same prescription for more than 3 years) and it made it harder to read the guide. Since then I have not worn my glasses or contacts since they make my vision worse. I still need corrective lenses, but I have to get to the doc to get a new prescription. I see well enough without glasses now to get by, but I like seeing crisply.
I do worry/wonder when I get off the cleanse that my eyes will return to what they were. Don't know why the vision changed, so who knows what will happen. Anyone ever had such a dramatic change in vision from a fast? I know it is not blood Sugar related since I have only had sugar problems for a few months and had the same prescrition for several years.
I sleep much better at night now and have very strong dreams. By strong I mean very emotional. I wake up in a good mood though.
Good luck to anyone trying the fast. Stay the course. I definately is changing me!
