I was diagnosed in 2009 and to this day, the doctors are unable to tell me what kind of diabetes I have, since I started low-carbing half a year after I was diagnosed (with a HbA1C of 11.2). First it was LADA, now it is Type 2, but I doubt that. I have been under 6.0 until before this summer (so for more than 3 years), eating 80% fat, 15% protein, 5% carbs, but now my HbA1C is 7.2 and I think it's time to start insulin, after I have been on 2000mg of Metformin since my diagnosis.
My fasting bs is currently in the 180s but during the day I'm between 110 and 150, I eat less than 10g of carb per day, and am aiming for just 1g protein per kg of body weight, so for me, high bs has nothing to do with the food I eat, and everything with the glucose my liver dumps into the bloodstream on its own.
My theory is that my diabetes is mainly stress-induced, starting with high levels of adrenalin and cortisol all my life due to being a Highly Sensitive Person. This would also explain the extremely high fasting bs - adrenalin is what gets me up in the morning (and I am thankful for that!), and the inevitable consequence is that sugar gets dumped into the blood, where it meets less insulin than usual due to the morning clean out (dawn syndrome). All very clear but nevertheless annoying, and since "calming down" in the morning is not an option, I will instead go for insulin, I guess. Any thoughts?
