I have been diabetic (type 2) during last 8 years. Somehow my BS readings became high (FS 130-150 and PP 200-230) during last 18 months in-spite of high medication (2/3 New triglucored forte or Amaryl GP2). Then I came to know about LCHF diet plan in this forum about a month back.It gave me immediate support. FS became 100-110 and PP 130-150 (under same medicine). I am now sure following LCHF I shall be able to control my BS readings and may be reduce my medicine (specially the Pioglit part which is not good for health though it helps me most in reducing BS).
However this week I had gone to a religious place ( Tarapith in westbengal - a Peethasthan) and taken a large amount of Rice as 'Bhog". The result was 330 PP which I could hardly believe. It was never so high in last 8 years, Immediate diet control brought my FS back to 100 and PP to 135. I also learned that carbohydrate is really bad for me specially when I am in diet. In marriage parties once a month I did take sweets / deserts but morning FS never changed much (increased from 110 to 115 say).
I feel now continuous watching of BS after & before food/exercise tells us lot and help controlling life style.
Warm regards and best wishes for all in this forum
