Morning friends. Lovely autumn day here in Kent.
I have the above, also family history of diabetes, and am currently on a diabetes awareness course run by a private company on behalf of the NHS. I have halved my carbohydrates (having already totally given up all processed carbs like biscuits, cake, white bread and anything containing sugar) and am exercising more, and after eating which the course tells us is best for controlling blood sugar.
My last HbA1C blood test (it measures blood sugar in the blood over the past three months) was first week in August and blow me, it was exactly the same as the test three months previously.
Very disappointing especially when people I know with diabetes and prediabetes are getting great results with far less changes in their diet and lifestyle than I am making.
Hence my question in the post's title. I will also put this question on the diabetes forum but know there are some here with (pre)diabetes, as of course many have had to use large amounts of steroids like prednisolone in order to control our symptoms and basically to survive. Any thoughts welcome and hope everyone is doing well.
