I don't know what i have done wrong. I did everything right. LC diet, exercise and when i say LC it was pretty much under the 20 grams a day, not per meal and my A1c went up. I really feel ashamed about this and so depressed and a failure. Why in all the is Holy would my levels go up. Please if anyone does comment try and be kind as i am quite a mess about it. I know people will say but it's only 2 points up. But i have already lost breast through cancer and don't want anymore of my parts cut off. I am not after sympathy either i just want someone to tell me what else i can do to get them down to at least 5.5. Also i did have the shingles for about a month and someone did tell me that would affect the levels.Thank you everyone for all the advise i have received in here I have really appreciated every single comment good or bad. Please forgive the self pity.
