SignatureLow carb/low GI and exercise controlled for about 17 years. Inherited diabetes not from overweight.
Metformin 500mg once a day at my request in May 2021 because it was taking up to 7 hours for bs to go down to <6 before eating lunch and it is now down in 4-5 hours . Fasting bs has remained at 7.1-7.3 and I remain pretty keto with my diet. GP has me down as Insulin Resistant!!
April '18 HbA1c = 44.
July '18 (after constant high 6 /7+ morning readings) 48 again. 2 weeks later - for some reason it was 47 so off the meds hook again. Started with Indian Amla powder and Berberis Aristica - mornings now around 6.1 . November'18 HbA1C was 43 (6.1)
July '19 45 (6.3) so still below the magic 6.5 which equals medication!! Before lunch low 5's.
Nov '19 44 (6.2) disappointed its not lower .April '20 48 (6.5) n Fasting 7-8 Nov '20 47 ( went keto) May '21 46 (6.4) . Aug '21 45 (6.3) after Metformin 3months.
