Hi Everyone, I've been getting a bit worried recently that my diabetes management attempts aren't working... I was diagnosed in Feb 19 with T2 with an HbA1c of 48, then 51 - no symptoms. I was a bit surprised as I eat quite well and exercise and am slim and only 36 although there is a lot of diabetes in my family and I am South Asian. I tested negative at the time for GAD antibodies. Over the next few months I lost about 5kg to bring my weight down to 48kg, BMI < 21. I cut out carbs and snacking a lot - although would occasionally fall off the waggon - chocolate my real weakness. HBA1C in June was still 51, which I was disappointed by. My GP suggested Metformin but I am reluctant. I bought a libre which shows a persistent fasting glucose of around 6 - 7.5mmol/L even when I haven't eaten for more than 12 hours. What I eat doesn't seem to make much difference! My blood sugar spikes but then tends to come down. Everything else is healthy - blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, vit and min levels, liver enzymes. Most of the weight I've lost is from my abdomen which I thought would make a difference but hasn't. The only other possible thing is my thyroid which I recently found out was underactive. I really wanted to manage this with lifestyle changes rather than medication - I was aiming for Newcastle diet style reversal. But nothing seems to work. Has anyone been in this situation or can anyone offer any advice?
