Hi all. First of all, I don't want to offend anyone who is struggling with their cholesterol or A1Cs. I don't take it for granted what my results were. I'm very appreciative and I know how hard it is for people to get their numbers under control.
In May I was diagnosed with Type 1 and had an A1C of 12.8. I just got some blood work done and my A1C was 6.3. I have been trying to keep pretty good control of my BGs and I am probably honeymooning as well. My doctor thought that 6.3 was pretty low and even thought that maybe I should get off of MDIs and switch to oral medication?? I was a little freaked out by this, since it's taken me so long to adjust to taking insulin and getting things under control. She wants me to eat more and snack... but I'm trying to stay in a good range of BGs? I even mentioned the fact that I may be honeymooning. She wants me to get some tests done to see whether I am a Type 1 or 1.5 (LADA). I'm 27 years old. I agree with that, but I feel like I should stay on insulin until maybe I stop honeymooning instead of switching to oral medication.
Also, my cholesterol levels came back very low. I've been trying to eat lean meats, fish, as well as eggs, yogurt, etc. I lost a lot of weight and am trying to gain it back. What foods are good to get my cholesterol up? Right now all I can really think is to eat more eggs and avocados maybe?
I hope I'm not offending anyone, I'm not trying to complain about my numbers being too low, I'm just confused about these developments and what it means for me going forward. Any advice or help would be appreciated.
