So you are in France? I had a French exchange student in June. He did cook a bunch of French things with a lot of white rice. So I ate it so that could be some reason for my level being so high. It sounds like you no longer are on insulin or any medication but your levels stay way low.

Yes,

I've now lived in France for over ten years and landing in a French ER going DKA (exactly 5 years back) isn't a lot of fun particularly when your pidgen French isn't up to coping with discussing medical information in detail

But I survived and with the help of my BH started on the path of LCHF immediately. I started on basal insulin - and managed to eliminate the need for it by early November. Since the beginning of 2011, my HbA1c has been firmly in the low 5% club - entirely on diet. (For the full story, have a look at my profile )

My only issue? I think my new doctor has it in her head that I'm cured. Sad when a professional doesn't know the difference. But maybe I'm misjudging her.

And the tradional French dietary regime is perfect for the job despite its contamination by you lot from over the pond - but it does take a bit of thinking about and avoiding pre-processed foods.

Default sugar level

Remember in French a dragon fly is a libelu ;-)

Is diabetes kind of like alcoholism? Alcoholics can have had no alcohol for several years but I guess they are still alcoholics?

Yes, as far as can be established once your pancreas stops coping with carbohydrate, you're stuck with handling it manually for life.

So whilst you can get into a state like mine where I have no significant diabetic issues, you still need to control the carbohydrate intake or pay the price.

Controlled diabetes is not "progressive". But uncontrolled blood sugar will do damage over time and that damage will make diabetes look like a progressive condition.

I'm under orders from the BH to live until I'm 95 and I have no plans to need a wheelchair or white stick at any time until then.

When the pancreas and the body's carbohydrate metabolism is broken - it doesn't fix itself. So, yes, once a diabetic, always a diabetic. However, a diabetic can become so well controlled that none of their labs will show diabetes.

Without seeing the ingredients, you cannot really tell but from where I'm sitting, I'd have serious reservations.

Remember that mantra I quoted earlier? Ask your meter!

An Oopsie glazed with coconut oil filled with bacon, hope the catsup is sugar free.
