Last year I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. The doctor wasn't quite sure what type of diabetes I was pre- since I wasn't a typical Type II at all (great cholesterol numbers, low body fat etc) and I tested negative for Type I and LADA antibodies. What did happen was that I spiked high after eating anything with carbs including 100% oat bran.
So I went on a low-carb/paleo-ish diet. Testing myself after every meal and just not eating anything that spiked my sugar. So I eat lots of veggies, tree nuts for snack, eggs, cottage cheese and meat. Ive been pretty strict about this for a year, the only dessert I have is 2 squares of 90% dark chocolate which is low in sugar anyway and doesn't spike me.
I felt pretty good about everything, I felt great, lost weight, have nice muscle tone from working out more. Then I went to my endo and my Hba1c is higher now than before I started low carb. What's going on? Is there nothing I can do to stop this train? Has anyone else gone low carb and had the Hba1c go up, especially this early on?
