Need some advice. Was diagnosed three years ago as type 2. Was already on healthy diet and a regular exerciser. Went low carb and had good results. I went off low carb wagon in the summer holidays due to lovely soda bread in Ireland. Nothing extreme. I ate a couple of slices of the bread per day during my week's holiday but otherwise stuck to veg and meat. My sugar levels crept up to 9 ish after meals and 8 after fasting. I went back on to my low carb diet but my levels have been steadily rising. I have fasting levels in the morning ranging from 10 to 11.7. Four hours after a meal, I can have levels of around 10. I am feeling a bit down as I have been working hard on the low carb and putting up with people rolling their eyes at my "faddy diet". I phoned my GP for advice. Basically she asked me to get the usual diabetic bloods done and then come in to "discuss options". I really don't want to go on medication. I am exercising regulary and avoiding starchy carbs. Is it possible that some diabetics, even on a low carb diet, will end up having to take medication? I am a bit of a perfectionist and feel I will have failed if I end up on medication. Has anyone else had a similar experience or rising blood sugars despite low carb and exercise?
