Thank you paleohacks for this site and thank you Grace for your response post on this subject Aug 5, 2010. That post made me realize what my problem was.
Briefly before I ask my questions. 18 months ago, I was 44 and reaching obese. I could not lose weight and started Crossfitting and went Primal all to find out I was a severe Celiac.After 3 months Primal I shocked the doctor because I reversed my Lipid panel but had high fasting glucose,127.When reviewing my last GTT I had a 142 at 1 hr and a 73 at 2 hours showing I have an issue there. I went strict Paleo January 1, 2011 and finally gave up dairy, condiments and for the challenge gave up alcohol.My morning numbers have not changed, they fluctuate between 110 and 140. My crossfitting is intense now and my recoveries are slow. I do wake in the wee hours sweating but often cold. I am otherwise always under 100 and in ketosis most of the time. I am NOT hungary and don't eat like I did before. I only eat twice a day now and I don't eat as much and am able to go longer periods of time without food.
I have many concerns.....
is this ok? My last A1c was 5.7. I am thinking as long as my morning number is never over 140 I should be ok? isn't it really about the averages? and/or could this go away on its own?
I read that this could be due to hormones or lack of VitD or high6/low 3 issues. a. Is there some hormone testing that would be appropriate? b. should i start taking a D supp right away c. how do you know if you are ingesting the right balance of 6/3 without logging the food?
Could introducing more fasting help?
I really just need a little more help figuring what to do next.Thank you in advance for your responses.
