I thank Medfree for enquiring about my BS levels and medicines. It was about 6 months ago when I joined this Forum that I heard about LCHF diet strongly advocated by Mr. Anup Singh. I tried it and found it effective in maintaining normal BS levels. I was able to reduce my daily insulin from 15 units to 8 units and Glyciphage (Metformin) from 1000 mg to 500 mg. My FBS remained in the range of 80 - 110 (earlier it had been in the range of 150 - 200). In between I had times when the BS levels shot up to the former high levels. But thankfully I was able to discover the reason from Dr Bernstein's Book on Diabetes - Infections! Every diabetic should guard against catching cough, cold, fever, tooth and other type of infections. Mental tensions and stress can also raise BS levels. I thought sharing these experiences may be of use some of the readers.
