Hi, I got an HbA1c result of 6% in Feb 2018. I got sent all the blurb about being high risk etc and would I like to go on a "healthier you" programme to learn about making changes etc. Trouble was: I wasn't over weight (BMI 24.5) .I had been what I thought was good healthy food, and did moderate exercise. My blood pressure is low to normal and my cholesterol ratio very good (however total was7.1)Ihad figured I was doing ok till this test. I was appalled at the pre diabetes label and the scary predictions . 9 months before I had had surgery to remove a gynae cancer . No chem or radio needed. Hopefully cured. The psychological effects of a cancer diagnosis knocked me for six and I was just coming to terms with it when I got the pre- diabetes bombshell. Yet another nasty disease that could be waiting to progress or come back in my future ! I was determined I wouldn't let myself slide into diabetes without a fight. I hadn't survived cancer to blindly drift into diabetes!!! So I read up about low carb (30-60g) eating and stuck to it big style for 4 months. Monitoring my BG s regularly throughout. I lost 18lbs (down to a BMI of 21.9) and reduced mybody fat % down to approx 26%.i increased my exercise by doing lots of walking and cycling. Confident I should have made some impression on my next HbA1c I was devastated when it came back 6.1% cholesterol ratio still good due to loads of HDL ( total now 7.5!). I am now at a loss what to do and how to eat.. I could stick to the low carb eating whilst I had hope it was helping but I need to feel that the effort is worth it and my resolve is now wobbling. My doc has been pretty much a waste of time saying just eat healthy..it's probably in your genes . Gee thanks for that doc . But what is healthy food for me ?? Low carb ? Low fat? High fat? Traditional "eat well" plate portions ? My fasting readings are currently around 6 and on low carb don't rise above 7 in the 2 hrs after meals. I really don't understand how my HbA 1C is what it is. Feeling pretty low and confused and would really love some understanding support as hubby just can't grasp how I feel .
