I have reduced my hba1c from 143 to 66 over the past two and a half years. I am having blood tests next week and the My Sugr app estimates 6.9 so hopefully my hba1c will be lower than last time. I saw GP today and he said that I need to lose weight. I told him that I eat low carb and I test before and after meals and if anything raises my level more than 2.0 m/mol I don't eat it again. Since April I have gone above 10.0 m/mol half a dozen times but I am usually in the 7.0-8.5 range. I am trying so hard but I still have high fasting levels and my lowest reading was 5.8. My GP looked at my levels since diagnosis and the way they have reduced and said that if I keep going I will hit a point when my blood glucose will drop and I will then lose weight. He said that I may be very insulin resistant and this can take years to improve but it definitely will. I have fewer than 50g of carbs daily and I have recently cut out the nuts and cream in an effort to lose weight. I'm determined to carry on eating low carb but I would like to lose weight and get into the normal range. I have not taken any medication so far and I would prefer to stay medication free. Has anyone else experienced such a slow start?
