I was diagnosed with mild Type 2 Diabetes 9 months ago and have been able to control my blood sugar with a low-carb diet and exercise. My most recent physical showed that my cholesterol has gone from 191 (pre-diagnosis) ito 221 in the past year. I thought that this might be because I've been eating a lot of cheese, given that it has no carbs, so three days ago I eliminated it from my diet. My blood sugar had been averaging 120, but now I often get readings in the 90s, which is great, but makes me wonder if it has something to do with dropping the cheese. If not, what could be the explanation?
