    Meanwhile over at the flog it's not all skulduggery,duplicity and miss-information. Yet again we see a great success story and yet again it's our old friend LCHF it was ever thus.

    05/06/2015
    HbA1c - 49 (I thought it was higher than that, but apparently not)
    Triglycerides - 6.7
    HDL - 1.3
    Weight - 75KG

    28/08/2015
    HbA1c - 36
    Triglycerides - 2.1
    HDL - 1.3
    Weight - 66KG

    Guys - this is thanks to the ideas and advice on this forum.
    Yes, OK, my diabetes was caught early and it looks like I've been able to nip it in the bud, but I'm thoroughly proud of myself and extremely grateful to the folks on this forum.

    LCHF RULES!!

    Sid the Joseph Goebbels of the flog.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the flog can shield the people from the political, economic and/or poor dietary consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the flog to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the flog”

    Not the only success story today attributed to LCHF  thumb-up


    4 Months and Amazing HbA1c Result!

    Hi All,

    A tad confused but also really happy at my progress (thanks to all the good people on here) giving me help and pointing me in the right directions…

    Basically saw my Dr four months ago where he diagnosed me in May with my HbA1c of 103. He said to come back in 4 months and see how I was doing, so last week popped in and saw him.

    I told him what I’d been up to and he said he'd like to do my HbA1c again and a cholesterol test as he was very concerned that I had been following advice from the forum, ignoring NHS advice and doing a LCHF diet.

    Long story short I’m a tad confused but happy as HbA1c Sept

    May - HbA1c - 103

    Sept - HbA1c - 37

    So I’m over the moon with that result, so I’ve allowed myself to go out and have a small packet of walkers crisps!

    I’ve got the diabetic nurse to see (previously scheduled) on Friday but all things considered thanks everyone, and I won’t believe the result until I carry on with everything I’m doing, continue with my weight loss (I was obese [just] ) now just overweight, for another 3 months and see what my HbA1c come out as then.

    Everyone - THANK YOU!

    I know we are all extremely biased here re low carb higher fat, but has anyone here ever come close to good reliable control with any other method ? Also does anyone know of a diabetic who got into low carb early and kept to it, who has ever suffered from a serious non reversible life changing complication. I don't know any and I know a lot of diabetics.

    After about 13 years (I downloaded a lot of usenet posts going back to before my diagnosis) I'm yet to see ONE from a credible source where the patient actually suffered any of the dire consequences predicted.

    The only thing that MAY happen, though often doesn't, is that LDL increases. It's not uncommon for it to increase while weight is actively being lost, and then go back down again, that's just part of the process. At the same time though HDL invariably increases, often by more, and trigs go through the floor, which basically indicates the lipid metabolism is working properly again and the LDL is big fluffy non-harmful particles.

    I HAVE seen a subset of nondiabetics whose LDL goes up a lot on low carb: I suspect this means they are people who are genetically adapted to eating carbs, which we aren't, obviously.
