My blood sugar has not been good ever since I returned from UK. During my whole month stay there , the readings were beautiful, always less than 6 mmol/L for my fasting blood sugar reading. That is why I could indulge myself with lots of cheese cakes, bread, chocolates and even icecream while in UK.

In January, my sugar reading was hoovering around 6 to 6.9, never below 6. Worst still being the festive season, it is food, food, nothing but food all the time.I have been taking leaves like Misai Kuching (貓鬚草) , sharp tail Pheonix (尖尾鳯) but the reading never fell below 6. For information, every morning when I woke up I made these 3 pots of drinks:


Hence last Saturday I decide to change course, I went to buy 12 kilos of guava and started to take guava juice again after a lapse of 3 months. And on top of guava juice I took raw petai , I took 8 seeds on Saturday and 8 seeds yesterday. and alas...this morning my fasting blood sugar is 5.6 mmol/L...

    Yea, tea has that effect, not only lowers sugar, lowers cholesterol too.

    I never have the guts to get my blood sugar reading. :-)

    But then reading this, I think I'll have to cut down on some of those sugary drinks. Yeah, damn those leftover sodas from CNY. :-P

    Yup, just take raw.
    Peel the pod , get the petai inside and peel away the seed coat.
    hen you buy, choose those young petai, since there are less bitter and less smelly too. It will be easier to eat if you slice the petai up.
