I am new to the board, just recently diagnosed with Type 2 (May 29: A1C 11.8% and a 364 BG). I convinced my doctor to let me try diet and exercise over the meds (read the meds can increase the risk of pregnancy and I saw my wife go thru this 6 times I am sure I can't handle that). So I have been eating around 35 - 50 carbs a day, taking Chromium (500mcg) and Cinnamon (1.5 g),and jog/walk about 20 - 30 minutes 7 days a week and my fasting BG until a week ago had a range of 123 - 145ish while after a meal I have been around 150 - 170ish, now my fasting BG has been between 135 - 165ish and my after meal checks have been between 145 - 160ish.
No expert here but what I have read is that my liver may be introducing sugar to my blood stream causing my fasting readings to go up.
A couple of questions:
Is this a possibility?
Does my liver ever get the concept that I am dieting and start to self regulate?
Also, I would love to here some tips from others that have gone this route and did it work for them?
