My diabetic experience with LCHF

2015-11-24 14:17

I am 69 years old and I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes by my doctor in September.

My readings at the time were in the 16-26 region.

I had heard about the LCHF Banting diet and thought I would give it a try.

I cut out rice, bread, potatoes and pasta.I did not lose weight, but I was not banting for this reason.I bought an Accu-Chek and tested my blood sugar several times a day soon after I was diagnosed.

14th September my reading was 11.7 mmol/L and fluctuated between that and 26 over the next four weeks. Then on the 5th October the reading was 6.7.

Since then 81% of the readings have been in the target range.I stopped taking Glucophage after 5th Oct and now only take readings on occasions. I am always 100% within the target range.
