Breastfeeding definitely lowers blood sugars, I had a nice extra stay of about a week in the hospital thanks to some pretty bad hypos after the birth before I figured out what was going on!
T2 and PCOS. Just had large serous adenofibroma removed with ovary and fallopian tube. Bp is now normal!

Novorapid, levemir, trulicity, metformin.

Gordon Bennett - you should have been warned about that by the diabetic preg Drs and nurses! - and by all the posts about it in the preg forum.

Well that may be true (that your dawn phenomenon isn't disastrous) for you Nick - but certainly won't be true for anywhere near all diabetics.
I'm not sure how you are reading that.  My DP is pretty disastrous for me these days!
Hardly a study that the basis of anyone's diet (diabetic or non-D) should be based on anyway, as it only used 3 dozen LEAN people - and it did 'seem' to have an effect on the afternoon blood glucose anyway.  Usually we have enough trouble with our BGs anyway that we don't need any added influence to make em erratic!
It was only a study that demonstrated that breakfast is irrelevant to counter the assertion that it is the most important meal of the day.  Was I advocating everyone followed it?

Nick - I misread what you'd said, I read it that you didn't need to eat anything at all for hours - sorry!

The other part was just a comment - if someone who doesn't know your usual stance and knowledge read that in isolation - they might THINK you were suggesting it was 'true'.  I mean no one can fill their posts with caveats, we'd never get any discussion done.  It was just I read it and thought Grief, I hope no-one does that, just assuming if Nick has mentioned it - it must be right so I'll do it!  LOL

Oats are nutritious (use "Old Fashioned"or Jumbo if pos), but may impact blood glucose. Only your meter can tell.
