Reading over blood work…


I found out I have elevated glucose levels which is kind of strange for a healthy 18 year old they were only slightly elevated at 103 but still concerns me. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is it normal for a vegan since we are consuming a lot of raw fruits?

  1. I’m not the best person to answer this because I hate going to the doctor so I haven’t had my blood checked in a long time. I understand your concern, however. Is it possible that you’re eating too much fruit or fruit juice? In Joel Fuhrman’s ‘Eat to Live’, he recommends 4 servings of fruit a day. He also recommends not drinking fruit juice because too much fiber and too many nutrients are lost through juicing. He does say it’s okay to drink fresh squeezed juice if you’re generally healthy and don’t drink too much of it. I don’t know if this helps – it was just a thought. Celeste:)

    • Thank you Celeste! Definitely helps!! I’m going to pay very close attention to how much fruit I’m eating but I’m not drinking fruit juice. I think I’m going to go back in a month or two to get it checked again to see if it was just a faulty read ! Thanks for your help!!
