I’ve been diabetic for about thirty years. Actos.25 mg and good diet kept me around 110 for years and years. Tried very low carb and no sugar diet and sugar was over 200. Dr explained that my body was creating glucose to compensate. Nine years ago I woke up from a coma and they were injecting me with insulin. Sugar was 180 but I was on a feeding tube! Asked for Actos and within a week I was at 100.
Recently I’ve been eating no sugar and very low carbs. Dr prescribed and my sugar runs 200-300. I continually say that the diet is making my body send glucose to my pancreas. I pull up articles from the Mayo Clinic and other sites that state low carb/no sugar can push your sugar up.
My doctor won’t believe me and put on my medical records that I’m not following her orders with diet. Anger can’t describe the feelings that I have, being called a liar. I left and have a new doctor, appointment on Wednesday.
So … I’m being extremely good yet high sugar. How can I prove that my body needs some sugar— a cookie or two — of around twenty grams of sugar, to maintain a healthy sugar level?
I’m sorry for rambling but felt that you needed information to respond.
