Hello doctor,

I started my paleo in the month of November wherein my HbA1c was almost 10, continued strictly for 100 days and in February HbA1c was 6.5 without taking medicines. Afterwards, cheating started and now it is 8.8. Also, there are some imbalances in the blood report. Now, I am assuring you that I shall stick to my paleo diet and follow your instructions. Kindly suggest me a plan. I can take eggs and chicken.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Paleo or Keto diet is not sustainable, as it is elimination and crash diet, especially for morbidly obese people. It not only about bringing sugar levels down, also it should not cause any nutritional deficiency, which may happen with paleo.

Having higher intake of animal foods means having higher and processed saturated fats. For diabetes, all carbs are not the culprit, only simple and processed form of carbs raise blood glucose levels.

For sustainable lowering of blood glucose, one should have a large serving of fruits pre-breakfast (fruits do not increase blood glucose), a large serving of mixed salads before lunch and dinner. Reduce intake of rice and wheat based foods. Totally avoid market and packed foods, dairy in all forms, refined oils. With these changes, you can have sustained lower blood glucose. Please contact me for any further details.
