I am a type 2 diabetic that was diagnosed in Feb. 2013 with average glucose levels in the 250's. I had gotten myself down to averaging below 100 and A1C of 5.6 when my doctor said I could stop taking my metformin and see how it goes. Well a year later and with a new doctor my numbers were back up in the 190s with an A1C of 7.5. Needless to say my new doctor started me back on the metformin and so far as of 12/8 I am back down to averaging in the 140s with an A1C of 6.6.
I was hoping that someone here has done both the low carb and gluten free diets together and could tell me their thoughts and or suggestions. I have a family of 6 and my daughter has recently been told to go gluten free and I am diabetic so to make things a tiny bit simpler I was hoping that her and I could eat the same so I am not cooking 3 different meals each night.
Any thought would be much appreciated.
