Hey everyone Happy Holidays,
On September 4th I received my diagnosis of type 2 (5’10 about 215 lbs, A1C of 7.2 and Glucose of 172). I was put on 25MG of Jardiance and 500MG metformin 4 times per day.
I changed my diet/gym routines as well and eliminated all starches, bread, sugars and changed my workout routine to 4 days per week of super-sets burning about 400-800 calories per workout.
At my follow up Dr visit/bloodwork my dr had said in his 35 years of practice he never saw anyone reverse the levels as fast and said if he didn’t know my previous levels I would have been a picture of great health. (177lbs, A1C of 5.1 and glucose of 105) Yay Me.
Since Thanksgiving, I thought I could cheat slightly having a small serving of pasta or a dinner roll, nothing too overboard and keeping portions small. I’d say my healthy to unhealthy ratio is 90/10 with the same workout routine and weight fluctuates from 177-180 but my glucose has spun out of control averaging 180 + with highs of 250 plus.
I’m going back to the zero diet routine January 1 to see if there’s a 30-day difference but I’m pretty scared about telling my Dr. and having him starting me on insulin seriously scares me (not to mention the costs).
My other thought is could this actually be type 1 and not type 2 after all?
Thanks, everyone I really appreciate you taking the time to read this and Happy New Year.
