Hope everyone is well.
For type 2 diabetes on a real world level, can members perhaps list their readings (glucose) for the following times:
* Fasting morning glucose
Additionally, which set of medications are you on and perhaps do you have a copy of Type 2 diet plan?
I was diagnosed this year - so still learning the ropes on the readings.
Diagnosed 6 years ago.
Current A1C (and for the last 5 years) 5.4-5.6 (mostly 5.4)
Year to date average Fasting Number - 5.5/99 (lowest 4.8 highest 6.5) - my target range is 4.0 to 6.0
90 day post meal average (usually test after supper which is my largest meal/most likely to raise my numbers) 6.7/121 (lowest 5.2/94 highest 8.5/153) - my target range is 5.0 to 8.0 and while I do go high once in a while I am almost never higher than mid 8's
90 day combined average - 6.0/108 with a variation of 1.0 mmols/18 points either up or down "on average"
I take NO Meds and never have for Diabetes.
I rarely test in the evening because in my case it provides no clinically relevant information.
I follow a Low Carb/High Fat Diet where I never exceed 130 net carbs/2000 calories a day (spread as evenly as I can over 4 meals), never eat more than 40 net carbs in any given meal (if they are not equal meal to meal).
60% of my total calories come from Fat (with about 2/3's of those from unsaturated fat) and 20% each from protein and carbs (with a little bit of variation).
Yes, I track everything that goes in my mouth that contains even 1 calorie or 1 carb. Yes, it's work but it works for me and I maintain non-diabetic blood sugar levels over 95% of the time without meds.
Really - readings are great but these days even the medical professionals are recycling materials. Will see how it works out.
