I m a LADA diabetic still honeymooning, I was diagnosed last July and have been on a relatively Low Carb diet and use small amounts of Bolus insulin for meals ever since.
I have pretty good control so far, my last HbA1c was 5.6, I measure and record numbers religiously.
However I have seen a progression as far as numbers are concerned in the last couple of months, My fasting BG ranges between 100-125 and I sometimes see a postprandial number of 140. (Usually around 125 though)
My endo recommended on my last visit to keep doing what I m doing and wait to start basal insulin until my fasting BG is consistently over 120.
Lately though I have noticed a change in how I m feeling throughout the day, I am more tired again, sometimes I feel like its hard to focus my eyes and for a week now I seem to have to go to the toilet more frequently than before.
My question is, is it possible to experience these typical diabetic symptoms even with numbers like mine?
I thought for example the "having to pee a lot" thing only can happen when my kidney threshold (?) has been crossed, so I should be experiencing numbers of 180 or higher when showing that symptom?
Or could my symptoms be a sign that the illness is progressing and as I m nearing the end of my remission, my body actually has too little insulin now and therefore its reacting with these symptoms?
Is it (biochemically) possible to show numbers that seem to be well controlled, but only because of a low carb intake rater than having enough insulin available? And might that lead in the extremest case to DKA although the numbers remain ok at the same time? Or is part of the DEFINITION of DKA having super high BG?
Thankful for any answers!
