Bit of context ......this all started in March 18 when I had my blood work done for a thyroid operation. Just before the operation the anaesthetist called me to say "I believe your worried about your Hb1Ac levels" I said "am I what's that test for?" anaesthetist "Diabetes and yours is 61 which is in the diabetic range" you are diabetic aren't you?" I said "well not that I was aware off " "That's OK it's not a worrying level and wont affect your anaesthetic". I had the thyroidectomy and everything was OK thankfully, although I had thought that my sudden weight gain was due to a thyroid problem. To cut a long story short I had the Hb1AC repeated in May by my GP at my request and that was 52 (still in the diabetic range). GP said let me order another as it may have been a blip and if it comes back >48 your in the T2 diabetic range. It came back at 47 ... well done he said your not diabetic yet, go away loose some weight and take more exercise. I also have NAFL (fatty liver) and what he didn't know was in May I joined this forum, started a strict LCHF diet with the aim of controlling sugars and hopefully weight loss, testing throughout the day to monitor the effects of the diet. GP said this was excessive and not necessary and a little OCD. What I now know, having read more on the subject is that the weight loss has probably not materialised as my fasting levels are not below the normal fasting level of 4.5 and the highest I have been in the day post-prandial is 8.0 and I am probably Insulin Resistant and I am not achieving the optimal levels for correct fat burning/metabolism? I have read that a small dose of Metformin could help regulate my levels what do you all think? Am I completely off track?
