I had issues with blood glucose since December. I noticed by accident that I feel rather bad after high carb loads, and measured something like 6.7 at one point. Also, had this acetone smell in my mouth. So, went to a doctor, fasting and hba1c was normal. I then insisted on endo. Endo did OGTT, I failed it. Then, he did antibodies tests (4 in total) that came back negative. Also did thyroid autoimmunity tests, negative.
I was discharged because I did not have huge BGs, and he thinks OGTT failure was because of the diet. And to reintroduce carbs. I did for a week, and my numbers were crap. Another doctor told me to eat according to a meter, so back to low carb it is. Now, a week ago, I started seeing larger spikes in BGs eating same meals each day. It is usually not over 6.5 but it never got past 6.0 just two months ago. In addition, exercise started raising my BGs instead of lowering it. Past two days were tragic: my runs ended after 10 mins because of excessive sweating, headaches and feeling a bit nauseous. I found BGs to be around 6.0 after exercise, slowly reducing in post-mortem. Before, they were in low 5s.
Basically, I did not fix my pancreas, or rather wake it from sleep, reintroducing carbs. But now, low carb causes more symptoms and higher BGs.
Any advice is appreciated. I thought I am in control for the past month but clearly something is up. I already contacted my GP but he known little about my case, and even endo seemed confused, so I don’t put much hope into it.
