    Two weeks ago, mine was at a 12 yr low, measured at 80. I did the Leptin Rx last autumn, went to post Leptin Rx and CT late winter. Why aren't all diabetics doing this?

    If you were/are diabetic or pre-diabetic, please share.

    Good going :)

    Well, "most" people think the whole hearthealthy grain dogma is what's keeping them from developing more full blown neolithic disease. We are just a bunch of paranoid freaks wearing batik sarongs colored with organic tea-leaves while we're discussing gouvernment corruption.

    One of today's patients: A1c went from 13.4 to 8.3 in the last 3 months. Honestly, I was shocked. I asked her how she's been doing on the diet, "I cut out all sugar and grain and vegetable oils." She's been eating more nuts, eggs, meats, fish, shrimp, veggies, and occasional fruit.

    Eating food your genes want works pretty well apparently.

    Dan that's pretty awesome

    you should have her give a "Talk" to your other patients... let them lead by their success... next thing you know they'll all be paleo and CT!

    I have a different problem. My glucose was always between 89-99 not matter what. Morning prior to breakfast, after eating, hour after eating and hours after eating 89-99. Now, it can be 74 and then 119 1 hour after eating a lamb burger (plain without bun of course) and greens. What gives? I been mostly paleo (some cheese and yogurt here and their, leptin reset since Feb, Ct since Ct I)... I don't get it. Mu husband thinks I screwed something up with my system doing these "crazy things" lately.

    Liver is not optimal is the short answer....it takes time to control PEPCK.

    A1c went from 5.5 to 5.4 in almost 7 months of leptin rx.

    Let me be Jack for a moment here: "Something must be wrong."... Lol, sorry, I'm in a goofy mood :eek: and I would agree.

    When I started the leptin Rx last October my fasting blood glucose was in the low 100s (and 125 lbs overweight). I immediately saw improvement and by the end of the year it was down in the 80s. Then, for a couple months I would see it up in the 90s again at times (I was testing 2-3 times a week). For the past two months it has finally become consistent at 80-84 (I'm still 60lbs overweight).

    Interestingly, my husband (who is thin and struggles to keep weight on) started at the blood glucose level and cut sugar and grains when I did, followed an almost identical pattern (despite eating WAY more carbs than I do) and is now consistently in the low 80s too.

    Ok... since my FBG, HbA1C, and Insulin is high... I've decided to start testing before and after each meal

    today my FBG was 86mg/dl w/in 30mins of waking and right before having bkfst.

    1hr after eating it was 84mg/dl

    breakfast was 3 eggs, 1 cup of berries and 1/4c cream, and BPC

    I figured I'd see what the berries did - I figured I'd spike big time.... but to my surprise I didn't.

    Interesting... for lunch I had zuchinni Lasagana. BG pre-meal was 88, 20min after meal it was 110, 45min it was 117. (got to run out and pick up more strips) so I can test in another 30mins!

    Its either the cheese or the tomatoes...

    in my previous bg testing dairy didn't spike my bg, nor did the tomatoes....things are changing

    Eggs seem to be ok...but dairy/tomatoes spiking BG indicate I SHOULD RUN, not walk to the AI Paleo template.....

    117 doesn't count as a spike!

    for me it does... my bg doesn't move much when I eat meat/veggies. 10-20points at most. so to go from 88 to 117, that's almost a 30pt spike for me... 2& 1/2hrs later its still above 100. I'm guessing this is one of the reasons my FBG has shot up, and why my Fasting Insulin, and HbA1C are a bit high...

    Well, certainly the lower the better (helps keep the protein glycation rate as low as possible). A figure I've seen batted around as the threshold for cell toxicity is around 140, although I don't have any direct knowledge of that. It does sound like your return to baseline after a meal is a little slow.

    I did not test my sugar before starting paleo/reset and CT. All I know that it never was an issue, just for insurance purposes I had my FBG at 79 two years ago.

    When I started low carb last fall, I got a BG monitor. At that time my FBG was anywhere from high 90's to 110's. Once I went on BHRT and started CT, my FBG went down to 80's. I was so happy! Then, after a month it started to climb back into 90's and this week it was between 103-106.

    I just ate a few slices of meat, cod liver, a few cherries and berries with heavy cream and CO. My sugar jumped to 150 after 1/2 hour. I am lost on what is going on.

    When I get hungry or eat only protein, I feel like everything is pumping in me. Everything is working too hard in me. Any ideas?

    A similar thing happened to me too having been low carb for many months and then splurging on some starchy carbs (except I hit 170). Take a look here:

    Nature doesn't suddenly splurge on starchy carbs.... they come about slowly and the body has time to reverse the insulin resistance. But I'm not sure that the induced insulin resistance is something that should happen if you're optimal even in the winter.
