i was diagnosed in September 2018 with an hba1c of 66. I am 5foot 2inches and my weight was 54 kilos. I am now 47 kilos and painfully thin. I feel really well though and have been following the keto diet rigorously. I am struggling to get my blood sugar levels down to 5,s and 6,s ( although they are sometimes). I am mostly at 6,s and 7,s with odd 8’s. I have a friend also diabetic and he eats normally, even eats cake and chocolate and his numbers are 7,s. He is on more medication than me. I am on 500mg of metformin twice a day. It doesn’t seem fair that I am very restricted in what I eat. I work with 2 people who are diabetic and they eat sandwiches and crisps for lunch ! Should I ask for more medication? How can I get my numbers down to “normal levels” when I really can’t change my diet any more. I also skip breakfast often because my morning sugars are too high for my liking. Or do I stick with it and see how I feel in 6 months and see where I am numbers wise? I have just had a blood test to measure where I’m at as regards hba1c now 3 months after diagnosis. I don’t have my results yet.
