Now that I am able to effortlessly maintain my blood glucose in the 75-90 range all day with: 1) 10 units of NPH injection every 8 hours (as basal -- fairly flat curve when summed) 2) 1200 calorie LCHF diet (10-20g carbs, 75-90g protein) 3) 2x20 minutes of walking per day And the fact I: 1) feel wonderful 2) more mentally acute 3) keto-adapted w/ blood ketones 1.2-1.7 mmol/L all day (w/ only trace ketones in urine) 4) never hungry Is it possible for my pancreas to start healing or regenerating beta cells?--since I appear to have many left: I mean I am only taking 24 units of basal insulin right now and I am highly insulin resistant. (e.g. 1 unit covers 3 mg/dl glucose). So I must have some decent function left. Thing is though, I've had A1C of 7-10 for like 6 or 7 years. Last year it was around 6.7 avg. Last A1C was 6.1. Next A1C should be 5.2. And well if I can keep my blood sugar in the 70-90 range all day like I am now, then my next A1C should be well under 5. If I can keep my avg blood glucose at 83 mg/dL (which it has been for the past 7 days), is there a chance pancreas can repair itself? (I read in Bernstein's book that people maintaining this level of blood glucose have seen pancreas repair themselves.. but he said this is only usually when it is first caught... like 1 or 2 years within diagnosis.. again I've had it much longer than that.) I am taking 10 units every 8 hours of Novolin NPH when I only need 8 units. It makes no difference in my blood sugar level. I figure the extra 2 units are letting the pancreas rest a bit. Maybe I should up it a bit more to see if my blood sugar still stays the same, then compare fasting insulin lvls, using HOMA-IR. I want to give my pancreas a break as much as possible.
