I am a T2 Diabetic and recently began watching what I eat and the number of carbs that I consume after my A1C went up for the 3rd time in a row. It is currently at 6.9.
For the past week I have had a very low carb diet, have eaten pretty much all of my allowable calories, fat and protein. My blood sugar levels upon waking have been abnormally high all week! My last bloodwork showed a fasting glucose level of 160. All week I have been between 170-180!
My sugar levels are good all day long (I test before and after meals). I know about the dawn phenomenon and all that but considering that I have been eating better the past week, I would have expected my fasting blood sugars to be better.
My doctor also increased my dose of amaryl from 1mg to 2mg with dinner.
Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening? Its not the result I expected!
Thanks very much.....
