Re: [IP] Vitamin C & BG readings



It doesn't make your blood sugar rise. Just makes the testing less accurate
with some machines. That's especially if your testing in your arm. I'd call
your meter company to see what type of testing they have done for such a
case.

In a previous posting, someone mentioned that testing your BG shortly after
 taking Vitamin C could affect the way the meter reads the BG--does that
mean
that the reading you get on the meter is incorrect or does it mean that
 Vitamin C can actually make the BG rise? ---so if someone takes a
multi-vitamin
with a high dose of Vitamin C in it, could their meter be giving them a
count
 that is incorrectly high and you could possibly take insulin you didn't
need
and
go low?
