    Today HBA1C = 36 mmol/l (5.6%) on LCHF/keto diet for 5 1/2 months. Best ever with 52 1/2 years on insulin. Not perfect but getting there and with minimal hypos!!!

    My latest hba1c is 50 mmol which is 6.7%.

    It's my worst one since my diagnosis 2 years ago. That was 103mmol.

    I think my previous ones were 44 46 and 48. An upward trend there, mainly down to not being frightened to eat different foods.

    Possibly also honeymoon ending. I had results of 48/49 which are now up to 56 and I know my own insulin production is falling due to a c-peptide test.

    Just back from seeing my consultant and 33 or 5.2, am thrilled. I showed him my graphs from my libre which prove not many hypos, all due to low carb.
