Well done you!
Well done you. I lost 4st on a low carb diet and my Hb1Ac dropped right down to normal. Both my GP and diabetic nurse are big fans of low carb, and my GP was practically dancing around the surgery when saw my results. He said he wished more patients would take diabetes seriously
thanks for inspiring us
Go you! Fantastic, especially considering what the fates have thrown at you lately. Just brilliant.
Amazing hope I’m still like that in 5 years time gives me inspiration well done
Great to hear your success.
Do you follow low carb or Keto.
I am struggling trying to get my head round going low carb, worried about giving up carbs, psychological really but at same time A1c far too high and has been for about a year. Really worried about my long term health but can't seem to make the changes to my diet. Any advice would be appreciated.
What are you worried about? Once you get started it just gets easier.
Congratulations, @Rachox ! Great to hear your good news.
Can I just add that, like @Gill63 , I have concerns about my own ability to follow this way of eating, and would like to know more about low-carb vs keto. When first dx'd I went low carb. BG, BP, weight all came down. LDL went up.
How do your LDL numbers stay down on a low-carb or keto diet? For some reason I cannot figure out how to manage that. I really would like to know how as it's the big problem for me.
I was brought up in the 1940-50s on a normal fat moderate carbs type diet, so reducing my much more recent high carbs consumption back down again was not a big issue. For me "keto" is basically a fairly recent and fancy name for a very low carbohydrate/ketogenic diet, i.e. low carbs and sufficient normal fat foods so my body uses both carbs and fats/ketones for energy, which is quite natural and how our bodies are supposed to behave. (Not to be confused with the very strict therapeutic ketogenic diets mainly used since the early 1900s for the treatment of epilepsy in children.)
I don't have my figures to hand, but I've never seen very much change in my overall cholesterol levels since my T2 diagnosis (and LCHF diet) over 8 years ago - apart from one very low and possibly erroneous result. But have a look at Diet Doctor's take on cholesterol & LDL levels.
Useful link - thank you.
