    Signs of undiagnosed diabetes.

    _________________
    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Tick to all of these symptoms, but they were written off as "psychiatric" or just plain made up. Also add gallstones and gout which I was told categorically I did not have.

    All it needed was one lousy postprandial BG reading and years of suffering, and damage, could have been avoided.

    Yet even today doctors haven't twigged that if so many of these symptoms occur in "nondiabetics" as they do, that they have the diagnostic cutoff in the wrong place. What are the current figures, something like half of all diabetics already have complications by the time they are diagnosed.
