I saw my dr. today to get multiple test results including the final results for my adrenal tumor. Good news on the adrenal tumor - it's non functioning at this time so no surgery, just monitoring. What was a total shock was my A1C - 4.9! I've been following LCHF for the last 2 months but thought my A1C would be in the low 6 range based on my BG numbers. My dr. asked me if I was having lows. I said not unless it was during the night and I didn't know it. My morning number ranges from 72 to the low 100- most in the 80s & 90s. Bedtime numbers run 140-175 most days. My dr. seemed pleased with my A1C but I'm a little concerned that it might be too low. She took me off Tradjenta but is keeping me on 10 units Levemir taken at bedtime.
While I'm pleased my A1C has gone down significantly from 7.5 in late September I'm concerned it might be too low and/or there's nighttime lows I'm not aware of. She also wanted me to start Lisinoprol because I'm diabetic and I told her NO - I read about too many problems about it on DC (thank you). She said it can be toxic to some people and respected my refusal.
