I became member here about 4 months back when my FS was 140-150 and PP about 200. I was on New Triglucored Forte 3 times. HbA1C was 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 over last 2 years. LCFH diet started giving immediate benefit and I switched to Glycomet GP2 twice and Pioglit 15 once. Sugar came down to FS 100 and PP 130. The HbA1C done 3 weeks back showed 6.5 and 6.7 (two centers). I consider this a remarkable improvement. My target will be HbA1C to be 6.0. For this I think I need to do exercise seriously.I am specially worried about my pot belly which is not shrinking.
After the pioglit is banned I am on Glycomet GP2 , GP1 and then GP2 in night. Glipramide 5 mg total is little high but I needed this to keep FS to 110 and PP to 130-140. I feel I need to reduce my Weight (from 88 Kg) and so entered a Slimming Center. Lost 3 Kgs in last 2 months. My metabolism is still to be stabilized through timely meal and fruits + water. My extensive blood checking showed good counts for all parameters but my HsCRP is high, Cholestorol low and Triglycerine 200.
Thus my current target is a) Reduce weight through exercise/walking etc-meal is already in control. However may be Fat diet (Cheese and peanuts) made my weight loss slow.
b) Do Kegel for BHP.
c) Find some means to lower Triglyceride ( I do not smoke for last 15 years).
But still I am not sure what to do for DPN - numbness of feet - thigh etc in the morning. I take Alha Lipoic Acid 300 once in the morning.
Overall I am much better and LCFH is most important for me for the rest of my life - I am 64 now..
God bless us
