Hi all, Apologies if I’m posting in the wrong place. I am a newly diagnosed Type 2 Diabetic and I have an auto immune condition. I have been placed on gliclazide 80mg, once in the morning and once before evening meal. I was diagnosed in hospital and due to this my contact is the diabetes specialist nurse at the hospital. I have been given BG monitor and advised to monitor 2-4 times per day as I’m on steroids for my auto immune condition which is affecting my BG levels and the gliclazide can cause lows. The diabetes specialist nurse gave some initial dietary advice but one of those tips was to have a small amount of carbohydrate at each meal. However, I am obese and under a NHS weight loss programme with a view to lose weight pre gastric bypass surgery. My dietician has recently started me on a low carb, high protein diet and I have started to lose weight. So the new information froth the diabetes nurse is confusing. I spoke to her about this and she said to discuss with my dietician at my next appointment as she will likely change my diet again due to the new diabetes diagnosis. I have been testing my BG the last week and my fasting morning readings have been 4.1-4.8. My post breakfast readings 6.7-8.1 and my post dinner readings are 10.2-14.7 which is high but I am thinking this is because I have introduced more carbohydrates at each meal. Any advice or pointers would be helpful. Who do I follow advice wise? Obviously I want to get my HBA1C in range and lose weight as this is important for my overall health but I do not want to risk hypoglycaemic episodes. My GP has prescribed my tests strips, and lancets and done a medical exemption form for me which I think the strips and lancets I’m lucky given what I’ve read online as some GPs won’t prescribe these for type 2s. Since I have the testing available to me I want make full use of it to help my BG and diet but I just don’t know where to start. Thank you for reading.
