  1. ? For you. Have you or any of our fellow diabetic found that the “low carb” wraps still spike your blood sugar? I’ve found using my monitor the spike happens quite immediately and can mess up my next meal too as my blood sugar remains high with that spike. The “cheese” based ‘keto wraps’ do not cause a spike for me, neither do the lettuce based wraps, cabbage based wraps do not, and the corn tortillas wraps have minimal impact (if you can do corn), I don’t do corn otherwise. Oops that’s not Cottre to, I can also do corn small taco shell for a taco with no spike. Thank you in advance if you reply.
