I have been taking simple route of reducing carbo and increasing vegetables and pulses. No set diiet but conscious reduction of carbs. Of no sweets or sugar in any form. Could reduce medicine by 3/4th. Trials with zero medicines for past two weeks show progressive increase in fbs while pp somehow is within limits. This is surprising since earlier it used to be the otherway. Looking critically at evening meal and will review whether to go back to reduced medicine (1/2 tab glynase mf at night) which was giving good control and sugar levels as good as non diabetic.

Need to know the effects after a little longer time. I am convinced that low carb plus excercise can bring down the blood glucose levels to normal limits. This I have achieved without medinine for the last three months. What I really want learn from you are your (1) lipid profile and (2) A1C values before and after taking to high fat diet.

This will be helpful for many of us to remove the fear of taking to fat fat.

I can see that you are attempting to lower your carbohydrate intake, however vegetables contain some carbohydrate and pulses especially so. My point is that replacing processed carbs with natural carbs may not be sufficient in itself to lower your fasting blood sugar for instance.

Keep your carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate), ideally 3 meals x 4 carb portions. uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...

Make up the balance of your meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods such as meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, cheese, coconut oil, palm oil (not hydrogenated), olive oil, butter, ghee, duck fat, goose fat, and lard.

What is portion? How to measure it?

A carbohydrate portion contains 10 grammes of carbohydrate, as you can see from the text. Follow the website links to find how much carbohydrate is in foods, and which carbohydrates are released more slowly to reduce blood glucose spikes.
