Hello, I found out 5 weeks ago that my blood sugar was high (fasting 7.6 hba1c 6.6) but as I was also suffering a liver infection at the time my GP said to repeat the bloods in 3 months. Well I ignored him and got a monitor as I was feeling so scared and decided to completely change everything about my diet. I started on a low carb low calorie diet straight away and have lost 10kg in 5 weeks. BUT my BG still isint coming down and is now going up ( 9.2 my highest reading) and this is worrying me. How long does it take to lower blood sugar by diet alone for other people? Do I need to get back to the GP and push for meds? I want to take control of this so any advice would be appreciated thank you.
