I was just diagonised with diabetes , 18 mmol/l 3 month average .. I started a keto diet and doing a 16 / 8 fasting ... it has been 2 weeks now and I have got my morning sugars to 12 mmol/l and evening to 14 mmol/l ... should I keep doing what im doing and should i consider prescriptions ?
Diabetes is good, cholesterol is excellent, Kidney function holding steady, but my blood pressure is creeping up in spite of taking my meds every day. Where does your Dr recommend your blood pressure be?
Since my doctor says I don’t need medication, I was thinking I might try this. There is a brand called glucosmart, and many others. Has anyone had good results with this? I read that some people with PCOS are taking it instead of metformin, and with similar results. There was a study where type 2 diabetics added it to their oral medicine regimen and it lowered their A1C.
I find it difficult when it comes to get my lixisenatide I struggle. I ask for two boxes but I usually only get one. I am told it's expensive but the consultant prescribed it, but I don't think he realised the difficulty.
