Over the past 4 years my HBA1C has steadily increased from 4.7% to 6.3%. After testing at 3 months intervals the range varies from 5.7% to 6.3% during a one year period. While my numbers may not seem alarming to some, I would like to stop the upward trend by a combination of diet and lifestyle.
I have read ShooterGeorge’s blog, and am interested in trying out the LW diet and closely tracking and reporting my results. I would like to track my diet and as I have access to a blood glucose meter will be able to test my blood sugar levels at regular intervals and record my findings. I also anticipate obtaining HBA1C test twice a year.
My diet is vegetarian and I avoid root vegetables. I eat mainly whole wheat chapati and oats along with various green vegetables. Fruit is usually apple or orange about once a week. Rice consumption is limited as are dosa, idly and poori.
I am currently in Canada, which is a wheat growing country. I am unsure as to the equivalent to long wheat that I can obtain here. This link lists the various wheat classes:
I would appreciate guidance with regard to LWMDR
