I was diagnosed Type 2 (HbA1C 50) at the beginning of March (told by GP receptionist!!!) I had never been told I was even pre-diabetic so it was a bit of a shock. I have been trying to get control of my blood sugars and lose weight eating LCHF. I've managed to lose a stone so far and also been going to gym 2-3 times a week but weight loss now seems to be tailing off. I had my first appointment with Diabetic Nurse mid April who just told me to lose weight and cut down on fruit (which I used to eat a lot of). Since then I have been testing my blood sugars although she says I dont need to test so cant get strips on prescription and have to buy myself. I kept detailed record of my levels for the next 5 weeks, along with a food and exercise diary. Blood sugars are mostly within normal ranges of 4-7 before lunch and dinner and <8.5 after meals. However, despite normal levels before bedtime, I've been testing during the night if I wake up to go to the loo and its always >8.5 (highest was 14!) and morning average is 8. I just dont know what else I can do to bring these levels down. When I saw the DN a second time, she was not interested to look at any of my details, says I dont need to test as it will just confuse me (?) and just to lose weight. How?? I'm due to go on an education programme but not until beginning of July. So currently feeling like I'm dealing with this on my own without very much help or guidance from my DN or GP and I'm scared cos my mum died of pancreatic cancer after she developed T2. Please can anyone suggest what I can do/eat to try to bring my blood sugars down at night? Thanks for any suggestions.
