I don't understand how this can be - I demand a retest! A second opinion!!

Too much protein can cause sugars to go up, too. Your body converts excess protein to glucose. " I now have to take daily blood sugars" - that doesn't make sense to me!

Erika is right about protein...check it out.

Try 5:2. There is a BBC documentary that explains the concept and health benefits. It’s called “Eat Fast and live longer.” Dr. Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer wrote a book as well, “ The Fast diet.” This is more about when to eat than what to eat. Paleo also has very good positive results in lowering blood sugar. I can’t imagine how you could have high blood sugar on a ketogenic diet. Maybe a second opinion is in order

They do say that a damaged metabolism can take years to normalize. I think that's true for me.

There are medications or combinations of meds out there that will drive blood sugar up. I don't know if you take any, but might not hurt to check into it.

I also read too much protein turns to glucose too.

I occasionally get a high fasting, sky high in the morning but if I eat a high protein meal right before bed with fats and carbs like cheese abd crackers. (I have to eat to take my night meds.) But I can drink a protein shake, more protein, less fat and carbs and my blood sugars are totally normal. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Did your doctor do an A1c test or a standard fasting blood sugar where you didn’t eat from midnight the night before? And what was your number, if you don’t mind us asking?💁🏻‍♀️

Kay is right... too much calories turns to glucose. Do N Ok how active are you.? My blood sugar fasting is higher then I like So .... need to do something like get more active myself.

Checking your blood glucose daily will give you an opportunity to pick up on trends. I did it for a month and checked multiple times a day. It allowed me to figure out what specific foods were causing a spike. Sweeteners are notorious for doing that and sweeteners are hidden in many products.

I agree on the too much protein possibility. But. If you're low carbing, like keto, too many calories would NOT be an issue, if mostly from quality fats. I invite you to join those of us at Common Sense Keto over in Facebookland. Many folk getting their A1C, etc sorted there. Blessings on your healing journey!

And I agree about sweeteners, artifificial or otherwise spiking your insulin.

Add in turmeric into your diet. It's been proven to aid in diabetics blood sugar control.

I know how puzzling disappointing lab results can be. My cholesterol has always been normal and when I was in my 30's I was told it was low like a vegetarian. For the first time it was above normal in my latest tests. I asked my doctor how that happened when I had lost 40 pounds, was eating better, etc. I am trying not to over analyze it. Hopefully things will be better next time for you.

You have most likely: a. a receptor and insulin issue B. a liver with some damage or dysfunction C. a test where you may not have followed fasting protocol Your next test will reveal a little more information and since I don't know what 'sky high' is for you was the number above 126 for glucose and blood fasting?

Yes blood fasting was 129 and I even take drugs, Dr. said should not be over 70 ????
