I have been doing some extended fasts in the last couple of years, in order to lose weight and reverse my diabetes. I have also changed what I eat and when, all of which has helped. I’ve lots over 60lbs (from 258lbs) and the weight loss has transformed my life in ways I could write a lot about (but I won’t) Its just been great. I have also kept the weight off too.
But my diabetes continues and so I decided to have my insulin level tested last week, while I am on an extended fast. The test was done last Saturday when I was on day 10 of my current fast and the level of insulin is 19.6. From what I read online, this is very high. Is this right?
if so, I think this prevents my blood sugars from going down. They are falling but very slowly. This morning my BG was 136, after 12 days fasting.
I don’t have access to healthcare so I have to do things on my own.
If anyone has had a similar problem with their diabetes and insulin levels found a solution, please could you let me know.
