A Guide To Healthy Low-carb Eating With Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that has reached epidemic proportions. It currently affects over 400 million people worldwide (1). Although diabetes is a complicated disease, maintaining good blood sugar control can greatly reduce the risk of complications (2, 3). One of the ways to achieve better blood sugar levels is to follow a low-carb diet. This article provides a detailed overview of low-carb diets for managing diabetes. If you have diabetes, your body cannot process carbohydrates effectively. Normally, when you eat carbs, they are broken down into small units of glucose, which end up as blood sugar. When blood sugar levels go up, the pancreas responds by producing the hormone insulin. This hormone allows the blood sugar to enter cells. In healthy people, blood sugar levels remain within a narrow range throughout the day. In diabetes, however, this system doesn't work the way it is supposed to. This is a big problem, because having both too high and too low blood sugar levels can cause severe harm. There are several types of diabetes, but the two most common ones are type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Both of these conditions can be diagnosed at any age. In type 1 diabetes, an autoimm Continue reading >>

    low carb causing my fasting blood sugar to rise?

    A few months ago I had a fasting blood sugar test which showed signs of pre diabetes. I went on a strick diet for 4 weeks and lost 22lbs. I had another checkup and they told me there was no signs of diabetes. HBA1C was 5.4 and fasting blood was 99. I assumed all was well and went back to normal diet. Three weeks later I noticed my fasting level where 110-125 over a few days. I went straight on to a low carb restricted calorie diet, that's about 12 days ago.
    I have been consuming about 1400-1600 calories with around 130g carbs. Nearly All foods being low glycemic index. I thought I would add fasting days to my diet also. So I had one day on 650 calories. I have been doing about 1.5 to 2 hours of walking per day, plus either 1 hr bike or 1 hour gym. Since the fasting day (5 days ago) my fasting blood sugars have risen quite dramatically. My fasting blood sugar is averaging 145 and before bed I have scores as high as 175. I have lost around 12 lbs in the last 12 days. My BMI is currently 26.7 down from 30.2. My waist measurement is less than half my height 191cm versus 94 cm
    It appears that by loosing approx 34 lbs in total. I have managed to go from pre diabetic to full diabetes. I am very concerned can anyone give we a reason why my blood sugars are rising when I am eating such a low calorie low carb diet. It like my pancreas just decided to stop producing insulin. When a few weeks into the start of first part of my diet it was producing normal amounts. 72.3 pmol/l. My wife has said my breath has started to smell a bit worse last few days?

    Hello and welcome
    For many people 130 grams of carbohydrates is not a low carb diet. Your extra fasting may be causing your liver to release stored glucose and that is raising your numbers. For me, if my Blood Glucose Level is 150 or higher I can not do heavy work outs. Well I could not, my health has changed due to other conditions and I can no longer work out at all.
    It is debated whether there is actually a pre-diabetes. When you notice that carbohydrates are giving you problems, they will almost always give you problems. We can control but we can not stop our inability to use our bodies' insulin.
    How often are you testing? I know test strips are expensive but since you are trying to figure this out you may want to test when you get up, one hour and two hours after each meal and then at bed time.
    Has your doctor run any test to rule out the possibility that you could be a Type One diabetic?

    You've made a lot of changes to your diet in the past 12 days, without waiting for each change to take effect. If eating the first 'strict diet' brought your HbA1c back into non-diabetic ranges while maintaining normal insulin production, is there any reason why you can't go back to eating that diet?

Low-carb Caveat

There was a little girl, Who had a little curl, Right in the middle of her forehead When she was good She was very good indeed But when she was bad she was horrid. So goes the familiar poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and so goes most of our low-carb diets I suspect. When we are in diet mode and are deeply committed, we are very good indeed, but when we break and hit the carbs (and this includes yours truly) we are horrid. A paper in this week’s JAMA presents data confirming what I’ve long suspected: carb bingeing now and then could actually cause worse free radical damage than regularly eating more carbs on an ongoing basis. The paper titled Activation of Oxidative Stress by Acute Glucose Fluctuations Compared with Sustained Chronic Hyperglycemia in Patients With Type II Diabetes shows that patients with diabetes who have fluctuations in their blood sugars incur more free radical damage than those with high but not fluctuating blood sugar levels. Before we get into the nitty gritty of the paper, I will step back a little and go over some of the biochemistry involved so that the data will be more understandable to those who might not have a technical background. First, let Continue reading >>

It’s not too uncommon to have slightly high fasting blood sugar on low carb and keto diets. Is this a problem? It depends on your insulin levels, as outlined by Dr. Ted Naiman below.
