I've been getting a great blood sugar reading for the last year or so - well, great for me - I'm T2D. My average morning (fasting) read for Feb-Aug (6 months) of this year is 6.1 (110 in American) and for Aug-Sep (5 weeks) it's 8.0 (144). Only difference is that previously I drank booze every evening.
Here are my readings for the first few weeks of no booze: 6.9 6.8 7.3 7.2 8.4 6.8 8.3 7 6.7 7.3 6.8 6.2 6.8 7 7.3 7.3 8.1
And then I had some drinks and my reading the next morning was: 5.3
I used to drink about 500 Ml per day of vodka - mixed with soda water and fresh lime juice. Now I'll have drink maybe once per week.
I'm male, mid-forties, mostly-paleo and T2 Diabetic.
I've asked my doc if I can go back to Glucophage/Metaformin - but he wants to wait until my next HBA1C results (he probably does not believe my readings)
Has anyone had this kind of experience? If so - what did you do?
