Go back and read all of Blood Sugar 101 and learn to see what is really important diet wise for controlling your BG. Cut out all carb foods from your daily diet. It makes a huge difference!

I looked back at your old posts and saw you have mostly talked about neuropathy issues, but were getting your A1c's lower back in 2011. I didn't see advice on getting your BG down lower, you start doing that by cutting out carbs. You may be eating well per the dietician, but you see what that has done for you. Get your BG down to less than 140 all the time, until you do, it's not going to get better. Pat has given you a link to where there is a lot of information on diabetes, its issues, and how to manage it. You have to do it, there is no magic pill.

Jeff, the sad truth is if your dietician thinks you are eating well, then you are eating too many carbs, thus your high BG.

We really can't help unless you tell us what you ARE eating.

I really do suggest reducing carb content to at most 50g and maybe lower according to the eat to your meter principles of blood sugar 101.

Living with elevated BG and the up and down rollercoaster that is the result of eating more carbohydrates than one's body can manage is no fun. If you would be willing to adopt a LCHF way of eating, you would see your BG drop to lower, stable levels. With that, you will begin to feel much better.

As I read your post, I am concerned that the dietitian is finding fault with your meter readings, without looking at the amount of carbohydrates in your diet. I would guess that, even faced with the evidence of the CGM record she will not believe that her diet recommendation is at fault for your high readings.

If it were me, and I were contemplating going LCHF for my diabetes, I would wait until after the CGM was done so that it would be recording BG levels on the dietitian recommended foods and not the lower BG levels that will most certainly be the result in a change to a LCHF WOE.
