I have been a T2 diabetic for the past 10 years, insulin dependent. But lately tried venturing out low carb, high fibre and good protein

combination diet. However i did not see a whole lot of difference in my hbA1c. I was 7.8 in Nov and now lowered to 7.3 as of monday. A few things:-

1. I am complete vegetarian (no eggs/no meat/no seafood)

2. I eat organic food 90% of the time

3. Eat Greek yogurt

4. No smoke/no alcohol/no drugs

5. I have a sweet tooth but seldom i eat any candies/sweets...

6. Workout regularly

7. Sleep well at least 6-7 hours

8. Drink lots of water more than a gallon per day

9. Eat buckwheat, quinoa, teff, brown rice and all healthy picks

10. I do stevia(organic liquid) sometimes if i have my coffee...

Can you please advise!

Dear Sir,

You are doing great. Drop of .5 points in HbA1c indicates that you are on the right track. You may see further reduction in another 3 months.

Incidentally what is the diabetic medication you are taking!

First off thanks for the reply and am a female :-)! I am on levemir insulin pen 30 units everyday once!


Its me usual self...drinking lots of water. Unsure if that water intake has to do anything with the diabetes? I am more so thinking maybe am an insulin resistant....and/or the medication is not working on me! Thanks for the your reply!
