LCHF Benefits

I had started following LCHF diets since Jan’14. I am grateful to Mr. Anup @ medfree and all the LCHF followers who had shared their experience on LCHF and guided in managing the Diabetes.

Today I got the lab report and it is showing glycated hemoglobin level of 6.3%. I was expecting the level of 5.5% but it seems that some more restrictions on carbohydrate intake is required.

However, it is better than my last two quarters Hba1C of 7.1% and 6.6%.

In spite of more fat intake my Lipid profile has improved. My total cholesterol reduced from 208 to 190 and TG also reduced from 114 to 106 and HDL improved 45 to 51.

I am worried about my FBG which is not going down below 110 level.

I am not taking any medicine except supplements line ALA, COQ and Supradin.

Thank you for your advise on FBS. I will try fasting on Sunday as it is not feasible on working days. I need to give more time gap between dinner and BF which at present is 11 hrs.

I had achieved the A1C level of 5.5 when TG was merely 79 in the same quarter of last year.

I had achieved the A1C level of 5.5 mainly with the help of brisk morning walk of one and half hour. As far as I remember, I had increased my intake of fruits like apple and also kinnu juice in winter which had raised my A1C from 5.5 -> 6.6 -> 7.1. Which I gradually reduced with the help of LCHF to 6.3. I had adopted LCHF in the beginning of the year and not exactly following in toto. Just, restricted my diet to 2 chapatis for lunch and 1 chapati for dinner loaded with VCO and also added egg in B/F and peanuts for snacks. As advised by you, I have stopped drinking Milk and started taking one day old full cream curds with freshly grounded flax seed.
