    Hi all,

    Well, my blood sugar is low. A1C is less than 4.0. I'm seeing the Dr on Monday, but does anyone have any insight into this and if it's a big deal. There is very little on the internet about it. I keep getting results for a high A1C.

    Will this impact my DS and what I need to eat? I'm totally getting sugar crashes about an hour after I eat ice cream, but other sugars seem OK, but I don't eat much other sugars, so hard to tell. Fruit seems fine.

    Thanks all.

    But you have been dieting the last few months. Right? Very low carb and a liquid diet even. So these results are skewed because you have not been eating normally! I know how bad you wanted that goal weight. Unless you have a problem this is no big deal because you made it happen.

    In a couple months of continued very low carbing, I would get the same results.

    What MunchkinMunchkin said. The only other fact in low A1C is being anemic since it measures red blood cells.

    I will gladly give you a full point of my A1C!

    Generally, the treatment is to eat small frequent meals that contain protein and limit sugar.

    I have not been anywhere close to perfect on the low carb liquid diet. In fact, I would say, it's not been very good. but the weight is coming off. I'm really close.

    Seeing the Dr on Monday. Lets see what she says.
    You can have two! :)

    Hmmmm.....no ice cream is a bad option.....i don't like that...lol.

    I hope it's harmless; I realized I don't know very much about hypoglycemia.

    I had reactive hypoglycemia with my RnY when I was crashing I needed to eat protein so a piece of cheese or meat would counter react the hypoglycemia I know your not a RnYer but thought maybe this tidbit might be interesting.:(:)

    So, I went to the Dr today. She said, your glucose is fine, and my A1C was a little low. She said it's most likely NOT hypoglycemia. but the fact I was stopping the phentermine. And that I'm fine.

    She also looked at my tummy and said, the fat you are trying to get rid of is really mostly skin. A tummy tuck will do more than losing another 3 pounds.

    I'm going to Vegas on Sat to get a consultation with the Plastic Surgeon, we will see what he says.
