    after 1 year low carb it has gone up....

    I have chronic kidney disease and it is imperative I keep my A1C from going any higher.

    Signature

    44 year old female, 5'2'', BMI 22.9 (was BMI 26 when initially diagnosed)

    A1C July 2018 - 5.6% (37.7)
    started low-carb and lost weight, lowered BP, etc., but blood sugar still out of whack:
    July 2019 - 5.9% (41)
    Nov 2019 - 6.0% (42)
    I have chronic kidney disease and it is imperative I keep my A1C from going any higher.
    November 2019: Got a CGM and quickly discovered I have reactive hypoglycemia.

    September 2020 I took the plunge and committed to a 30-day very low carb way of eating. My fasting blood glucose has finally dropped into the normal range (actually even low-normal!).
