I started a keto diet a year ago. I was able to get off Januvia and My A1C went from 5.3% (5.7 mmol/L) to 4.8% (5.1 mol/L) In December I went off keto around the holidays. I found i missed fruits and some of the starchier veggies and legumes. I even had some sweets but not like in the past. I recently had blood work fasting glucose 103 mg/dl (6.0 mmol/L) A1C 5.0% (5.4 mmol/L) I am planning to eat low carb, but not keto. I have got out of the habit of logging food and counting carbs, My husband eats non starchy veggies and very little fruit, no grains. He has type 2 diabetes and is in remission. He never counted carbs. I found I am lactose intolerant and the combination of avoiding dairy (lactose) and carbs was restrictive for me. I want to be able to have some freedom with food choices without diabetes progressing. Do I need to log food and keep track of carbs and glucose levels daily? I have trouble sticking to eating meals and when I snack it is hard to keep track of what I ate. I can work on that.
