I first went on a low carb, thus high fat diet 6.5 years ago.  At the time my fasting sugar was a bit high and peaked after eating over 120 most of the time.  I was diagnosed as prediabetic and prescribed a glucose test kit and three measurements a day.  I have found my self to be very carb sensitive, that is until about last November.  After six years of this diet, which I continue, my fasting sugar now is almost always below 100, often in the 80’s after a day long fast and the peak 45 to 60 min after eating almost never rises more than 10 to 15 points.  My HA1c in early November was 5.3, the lowest I have measured.  Often glucose levels are lower after dinner than before. (I usually exercise in the late afternoon, which I have found tends to temporarily raise glucose level. So the after dinner reading probably has a competing factor, lowering response to the raise after exercise and raising and then lowering after eating.)  At any rate a plot of my readings before and after mid October last year show a clear trend of my glucose levels being on average around 10 to 20 points lower, almost all within the range of 80 to 110.  I suggested to my endocrinologist that after reduced carbs for six years that I may have "fixed" my pancrase, which is now producing a normal  insulin response.  His was response was "interesting".  We measure again in late April.  I expect my HA1c to be even lower then.  Is it possible to cure pre diabetes with a consistent long-term low carb diet?  Maybe even full-bore type 2?  Of course, I presume that continuing the diet would be necessary or one would revert.

You’ve done a wonderful thing, Birdman. I’d imagine that if you returned to your diet of 7-8 years ago, you’d soon undo what you’ve accomplished. But knowing how to partner with what your body needs is priceless. Well done!
