I had always had for many years an A1C around 6.8 ish.. So I thought the metformin was hopefully doing its job that I had been taking for a while now. However I just recently found out that after the doctors office decided to send a sample to mayo clinic I got a 10 for my A1C and the local lab got a 6.6. Ouch.. So for some reason the local lab is a bad test for me I hope it isn't bad all around. Yikes... I also found out my kidneys might not be functioning well as they should be already. So needless to say I got a big shock this week. I started trying to follow a low carb high fat diet now for starters. I haven't totally figured out what to make to eat and such as I am just starting but I understand the theory of it.
For what it is worth I measured my BG the first day and I was getting pretty high numbers like 300 and that was even after sleeping overnight.
After starting the diet I now measuring around 200-250 which is hopefully a bit better. I guess it may be too early to tell but hopefully its a downward trend.
