Glucose Win

Glucose Win

I love foot zoning! So of course when I had to stop zoning due to pregnancy morning sickness I was bummed, but that didn’t stop me from getting the benefits foot zoning offers. During a pregnancy I failed my first glucose test and the doctor became concerned that I might have gestational diabetes. I was so disappointed! I failed with a 151 and the highest you can get is a 140! So my Dr. told me to lay off the sugary drinks and sweets, which I did. I also started walking about three miles a day! But I was afraid that wasn’t going to be enough! So the day before I went back in to take the three hour glucose test I set up an appointment to get foot zoned.

When I got there I shared with my foot zoner the situation. She made sure to work my pancreas really well, but that express that there didn’t seem to be anything wrong with it. So I felt as prepared as I could going in to take the test this time around. I will admit I cheated a little and worked my liver, pancreas and stomach right after drinking the drink. And I believe that is why I passed!

When you do the three hour test they take an initial blood draw before you drink the glucose drink. Then they draw blood every hour for three hours after. My results came back and I passed!! WHOOHOO!! But that puzzled the staff. My initial was reading was 87 (and that was after fasting since about 10 pm the night before). Then hour 1 after drinking I was at 67. Then hour two (As the Lab Tech came to get me for this blood draw I actually had to run to the restroom and almost missed throwing it up in the toilet) I was at 120. Then hour three I was back down around 87.

I honestly believe that plummet in levels was due to my working the signals for myself and that my levels were as good as they were because I got foot zoned.
