    I am doing lchf for the last 3.5 years. I was having fbs 200 with 4 pills. I reduced medicines to 1 no. Metformin 1000 mg. But fbs is not becoming normal. Still it is between 150 and 180. Sgpt, triglycerides, hdl, weight, waist etc became normal. But sugar.... what to do?

    How low is the carb in your lchf? Some of the T2s here have to go very low to achieve decent fbs (it seems to be the last thing to return to normal).

    Alternatively, how long have you been T2? Were you ever tested for T1/LADA? Some people get an initial misdiagnosis of T2 because their doctor assumes anyone over a certain age is automatically T2.

    Good luck, hopefully some more informed T2s will post soon.

    ps it might be worth putting your country in your profile, as doctors in different countries have different protocols...

    Hi @Habeeb , and welcome to the forum!
    I agree with Ellie, could you tell us what you've eaten and drunk yesterday? Perhaps we can spot some hidden carbs there.
    Why were your pills reduced if you're still having high blood sugars?
    Good luck, stay safe!
