Hi all, I am 37 male with a lot of weight (137kg / down from 158 9 months ago). I started reading about insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome after I borrowed a friend's meter and checked by BG after a heavy pizza meal, only to see a reading of 220mg/dl. That got the alarm bells ringing, so in the last 9 months I adopted a low carb diet, lost about 20kg. My blood readings last month were Fasting: 100mg/dl HbA1C: 5.1% Fasting insulin: 25 uil/ml Triglyceride: 76 Total Chol: 176 LDL: 142 HDL: 40 My fasting level had come up in the last year, from 90mg/dl to 100mg/dl and so far I have not really managed to get this down; I can also see that 'Dawn effect' - what is the BG rise for 'normal' people? I have been using a Freestyle Libre sensor in the last couple of weeks as it allows me to track daily changes; But I am puzzled sometimes by the following - Post meal spike, drop after 1-1.5hrs, then spike again then going down again. Is that because of slow digestion? The limit in the app is set to 110 mg/dl (the green boundary). Appreciate any advice/ideas Many thanks!
