I recently had my HbA1c tested (which indicates your average blood sugar level during the past 3 months). I was surprised to see that mine wasn't lower, although I am very strict and avoid any sugar, flour, starchy tubers etc. etc. etc. It was... (more)

Are you overweight? My A1C came down with weight loss, over a year.

Just got my first set bloodwork done and need some advice! Low TG but LDLs on the high side (didn't get to do VAP). What shocked me was my high A1C score - it screams pre-diabetics, doesn't it? BTW I'm 24, asian female, and have been on paleo... (more)

neelie, Congratulations on staying paleo for 3 months! Your numbers look good, which makes me suspect a lab error on the HBA1C result. Some sources say a normal A1C can go up to 6.0%, instead of the more commonly reported 5.7%. Your result of... (more)

My husband is type 2 and when first diagnosed they put him on metformin and a drug called glipizide but the glipizide would make him hypo as well so they took him off of that. He controls his BG with metformin and diet alone now. Has not been able... (more)

My husband has type 2 diabetes and while his diet isn't perfect, he does Crossfit 4-5 days a week - it may be why his a1c has been normal for a couple of years.

As a type one diabetic myself I have a goal of getting my glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) under 5.0. I'm curious if any other diabetics have accomplished such a feat? Pre-paleo I was hovering around 7.0. After 8 weeks of paleo and tighter control of... (more)

Can you provide some links that support your theory that low carb leads to hyperglycemia? I check my BGC on a regular basis (not diabetic just curious) 1 hour after a meal and never find it above 90. I was under the impression that AGE happen... (more)
