Re: Glucowise

Whether or not that's true the point was that the olive leaves almost certainly do not have the same properties as the olive oil. I'm sure you think the oil is evil because it contains fats, but guess what? The leaves do also! Olive oil is not evil. In fact, most people who get at least 20g of oliv...

Re: Glucowise

Glycation happens much more readily with fructose than glucose That is easily avoidable by sticking to a diet low in fructose. One reason the Mediterranean diet mentioned in that page you linked may be so successful is exactly because it often avoids extracts and synthetics like that. Olive leaf te...

Kurzweil then found a doct...

Re: Glucowise

Why would you doubt it? It's exactly what you are doing right now. Except I won't blame my information sources because I'm prepared to accept the risks. JBI and others are worried about the sort who would blindly do something they read on the internet without thinking twice about the risks involved.

Re: Glucowise

I don't want to constantly prick myself. Glycation is one of the leading culprits in aging. So it would be helpful for me to know what foods exacerbate my sugar levels too much. I can't stop aging but at least I can try to age gracefully. This device would really help me do that.

I'm overly optimistic and $60-$65 isn't that much to lose. I don't plan to endanger anyone's life with this device. But it sure would be cool to know one's sugar level anytime of the day. It would definitely force me to eat healthier.

I've had good luck with GetDataBack NTFS back in the day, no clue if it's still any good. It will discover all sorts of garbage you don't care about (since it just crawls the disk looking for NTFS data structures) but it's more than zero. For me, most recently it was Recuva that saved the day, alth...

Older but with 3 year warranty

Also, this Amazon-fulfilled portable 13.3 inches monitor has high PPI and HDR plus easy to move around. Worth a try otherwise return it.
