Hi all,we generally test our blood sugar just before eating (FBS) and after 2 hrs of eating (PPBS).We also go for 3 months average (HbA1c).Sometimes,we wonder that our FBS and PPBS were in the normal ranges for last 3 months but HbA1c is abnormal and we doubt about accuracy of test lab.The following is the reason (as I can conclude on the basis of my own experience) behind "normal FBS/PPBS & abnormal HbA1c" and it is eyes opening:
Some foods (including LWMDR* ) show FBS & PPBS (2 hrs) within normal ranges but PPBS (30-min,1hr & 1.5 hrs) remain high/very-high.Therefore,our blood sugar remains high/very-high for more than 1 hr in a total duration of 2 hrs.If we take our foods in 4 to 5 servings (as it is generally advised to diabetic persons) then our blood sugar remains high/very-high for 5 to 6 hrs in a total duration of 24 hrs.Which affects our HbA1c readings.
For example:Consider the readings of my one day tests:
FBS-103,PPBS(30-min):173,PPBS (1 hr)-151,PPBS (1.5hr)-132 and PPBS (2 hrs)-110
So,as par FBS & PPBS (2 hrs) readings my blood sugar was under normal ranges but what was fact,one can easily observe while going through my all PPBSs.
These tests were done by me when I got abnormal test report of HbA1c as 7.65,in spite of normal test readings of FBS and PPBS (2hrs) for more than 3 months.
Thus,in order to achieve a normal HbA1c,it is reasonable to be dependent on any food item only after testing its overall effect on our blood sugar.Only normal FBS and normal PPBS (2 hrs) may not bring our HbA1c within normal range.
I request all of you to share your knowledge and experience to make this issue more clear so that a normal HbA1c can be achieved!
*I am not sure about long term effect of LWMDR i.e. it permanently cures or not.In fact,no body in the community,except respected ShooterGeorge has claimed of permanent cure.
